Cheap Chinese ABG smells

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by senorblues, Sep 12, 2008.

  1. I bought a very cheap acoustic electric bass from an ebay store and I am surprised how well it plays, looks and sounds but there's a really weird (bad) and strong smell coming from the tone hole. I checked for a dead animal but found nothing. Would it be the wood or the glue? Will it go away? Any ideas?

    I know that smell. its the wood. Some kind of plywood/chipboard/glue hybrid.

    Best advice... never lick it if it smells.
