Re: Smoky Acoustic

Time? It should go away after a while. Definitely wouldn't spray anything into it.

Re: Smoky Acoustic

Time and fresh air, preferably not at an extreme temperature. Come spring, let it air out. Baking soda may help absorb the odor. Put some in a small dish inside the guitar and change it frequently. If some spills, it won't harm the guitar; shake or vacuum it out and get the last bits with a damp cloth.

Good luck!

Re: Smoky Acoustic

Serious suggestion this time: cat litter. Absorbs any number of smells.

Re: Smoky Acoustic

Stick a couple of naftalene pills in there so that it smells like an old person's closet

Re: Smoky Acoustic

i know what you meant, but even fresh cat litter stinks to me. like the vomit rocks they used to throw down at school if a kid upchucked in the hallway....
