That Smell

Postby Bliff Curton » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:11 pm

Has anybody experienced “that smell?”


This smell phenomenon has been pushing me towards another Carvin/Kisel.
I have an ‘00/‘01 LB70p - opening up the case is a near-spiritual experience when that smell greets you as you look upon your instrument.
This phenomenon makes for quite the ritual and affected my psyche to have reference for the instrument.
I always though it was the wood finish but it would be funny if it is just the case.
If its the case, I want those casses for each of my instruments.

I've heard G&G adds some sort of treatment to their cases that are made in certain times a year that smells like vanilla. i think it has something to do with humidity mitigation, but I'm not 100% sure. :think:

That must be it.

The Smell is a vanilla/skittles kind of smell.

Thanks Spudmonkey

Well bummer, dude.

I purchased a new Icon, expecting to be able to experience that smell when I open the case

But they dont carry hardshell bass casses anymore.

Oh well, “attachment is the root of suffering”

I've heard of that pheromone that claims will help you attract women. And there's also doe scent spray for attracting the bucks.

I had no idea there was something to make people want to buy guitars.
