Hey all, a buddy of mine recently scored a sweet early '60s Fender Jazz from a gentleman down in philly. its in ok condition, and tho, the body is beatup, its a cool looking beatup. but, all in all, it plays fantastic! anywho, i'm sorta writing on his behalf. seems that a few days after getting it, he tells me that the bass' neck is starting to smell rather fishy. its not the usual metallic smell you get on your fingers after playing it for awhile. but a really fishy odor. we didnt think too much of it, but the smell has gotten progressively worse! and not just that, but the smell has migrated to his other newer rosewood Fender Jazz that he plays regularly!!! i know this story's kinda gross, but can anyone help? anyone know what's going on? is there something not as harsh as Lysol or the disinfectant wipes that he can use on his bass' fingerboard?
