I think it really depends on what is shrinking or expanding here ....
If the neck shrinks, wouldn't that be like relieving tension on the strings, thus making it flat?
And same for expansion -> more tension-> sharper notes.


Also being Canadian, I once had the unique experience of playing in a heated tent in the dead of winter (February) at something we have here called the "Festival du Voyageur". The problem with a heated tent is that you have these huge heater fans blowing in hot air but cold creeping in from the walls and the doors of the tent so the air is in constant flux. After about two songs of playing you'd be a good quarter step out of tune .... and not in unison with the rest of the detuned guitars ....

I suppose I should have been more specific...

I was referring to the strings, not the neck. I have found that in hotter, more humid environments, my bass goes flat, and in colder ones, it goes sharp.

I've also experienced this, but it was in a club in France. The "backstage" area was a curtained off corner with a red par-can for lighting...everyone's equipment was so out of tune (flat) the tech's were going crazy trying to get shit tuned for the bands...perhaps this is one of the (many many) reasons I despise Paris so much...

Cheers.
