    Oh yeah...I was groovin' last night, really feeling it...spilled a beer all over my cables. Any way to get the funk out?

    I just gotta say though, Febreeze really doesn't smell that amazing. When I have to get my gym uniform to smell good because I forget to bring it home to wash it I spray it with a ton of Febreeze and it just smells like feces, sweat, BO, and a little bit of flowers or something.

    It's not as fresh as they say.

  6. That's the other half of the reason I hate those cloth covered cables.

    The other half is because they kink up so much.

    You could soak a clean rag in a solution of baking soda and water, then pull the cord through the rag a few times, then follow up with a rag damp with water only, then a dry one...

  8. You don't like the smell of beer? Why drink it then?

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    Soak it in bleach
