    Greetings,

    I am looking at buying a used Peavey Patriot bass for a decent price. The thing is that it has been in storage in TX (think hot!), and though it sounds and plays well it foam from the case has melted into the back of the body. How would I fix this problem. What other, unseen things, might be wrong due to the length of its storage + heat.

    Lol I have the same bass and the same problem. I lent it to my nephew and it melted. I tried to rub some of it off and it gave the mahogany a cool worn look, but I still ned to get some off the neck and some other spots.

    If the neck is not warped or cracked, you're good to go. Constant temperature is fine on wood, it's dramatic rapid changes that do the most harm.
