Howdy,

I wouldn't worry too much about that, depending on the shipping method. If it is coming by UPS or FEDEX ground, then it will have been in the truck and probably the depot for a while in Florida before it gets to you. There will not be much change in the temperature.
The problem exists if it were the other way around. If the guitar arrives in a cold climate then into a warm house, then I would wait several hours until the guitar has time to adjust from being on a freezing truck to your heated home. When I lived in NY, I had to deal with this often when receiving shippments in the winter.
I hope that this helps.

RIC advises a 48 hour wait for situations like this. I would say a minimum of 24 hours (unless the conditions are really extreme).

I've never yet met anyone who could wait 48 hours to open a newly arrived Rick.

Wow. I never even think about this sort of thing. I'm glad I live in Southern California!

There are some on the Rick Resources forum who have done just that.
