... the LCD displays on my guitar gear stopped working. I have never had that happen before. It wasn't just that I couldn't see them because it was so incredibly bright and there was sweat pouring down off my face constantly, even cupping my hand around them failed to make them visible. My LED indicators were a little difficult to see due to the bright sunlight but were still working and could be seen. The air temp topped out at 110F and I'm sure the black metal gear was much hotter than that as it was in direct sunlight.
Then again, I guess LCDs don't generate their own light so maybe when the sun is that bright it's hopeless, even if you shade them. Anyone else ever have this problem?
