I recently bought a bass on EBAY and while the bass is ok, the case literally gagged us coming out of the box with a combination of odors a la tobacco, weed, peote, animal hair, (it was clearly a pet bed at some point) and who knows what else. The case is a crime scene. Jeffrey Dahmer would have been grossed out. I have scrubbed, vacuumed, applied Fabbris (sp?) but it still stinks. To the extent weather permits, I leave it opened outside which helps. When you bring it inside, it regroups and comes alive again with the old odors. It is now clean, but if you approach it to pick it up, well, all I can say is, it's just awful. I should probably dispose of it, but I would face criminal prosecution by the EPA. Any suggestions?
