- - Guitar wood?

I've heard this about acoustic and classical guitars, but do you need to take care of your bass temperature wise? My brother and I always jam in our garage (most space) and he never leaves his electric there. However, it is REALLY cold there (40ish Fahrenheit)
My bass is a Fender '01 Precision. Do I have to keep the guitar at room temperature? Does the tone of the bass at all change if the ambient temperature is too hot/cold? Just wondering... I don't want to make a mistake and suffer for it.

It's better to keep your bass at a fairly constant temperature, and room temperature is way better than 40°. Hopefully 40° is not your room temperature. The tone probably doesn't change much but the tuning will change with changes in temperature.

Garages can also have more moisture and eventually cause some rust issues with the hardware and strings if it's not in a case. Even if it's in a case, I'd put in some moisture absorbing desiccant in it. http://www.amazon.com/Moisture-Indic.../dp/B004N6O1NY
+1 to keeping your bass inside the house in a case.

Ok, because my room temperature is avg. 70F, and my brother really worries about leaving his electric in the garage. He left it once for 20 minutes in his case and flipped. I guess I should care about as much about my bass too...
Temperature is not an issue at all. Sudden changes in temperature are huge problems, and humidity changes are of concern. But just getting cold won't hurt a solid body bass, nor even an all solid wood acoustic guitar.
