I was hoping someone might have a suggestion for me.
I recently bought a 2013 Fender American Standard, in excellent condition. But it Stinks, badly. It didn't come with a case, so it smells like it has been out in the mid-west air moisture, mixed with food grease - and worst of all - glade plugin air 'freshner', the oil refill type. The combination is noxious. I doused the Strat in Gibson pump-spray polish, and rubbed the surface beyond slick. It has a maple neck, or I would have hosed it down with lemon oil.
It's been three days now and the rest of the room is beginning to absorb this nauseating odor. I promise I was meticulous in scrubbing this thing. It really is a keeper, despite the smell.
What's safe for the finish that would finally get rid of it's past life?
