    Depends on whether he just sprayed it or saturated it. Let it dry and fire it up, then you'll know.

    Is your dad still under warranty? Maybe you can exchange him for another model.

    Let it dry in the sun or in a drafty area, unplugged. Don't Plug it in or turn it on. You could also remove the electronics and take a blow dryer to it to make absolutely sure the're wont be any shorts when electricity is applied.

    Next time when you gig in a smelly bar wrap your combo in a big garbage bag and the odor will not escape.
     
  11. the smoking ban isnt nationwide. i know a few states still allow smoking in bars.
     
  12. Thats only because you are in Ca.

    I think you should go spraypaint your dad's car and tell him you didn't like the color.

    Whenever I order pizza, I use offensive fake names.
    Have him neutered. It made my cat stop spraying the couch...

    Take the cover off and let it dry well- placing it outdoors, or where there's plenty of air circulation helps. And hope that whatever he sprayed didn't get into the controls, although normally the knobs prevent this.

    If you don't see any residue inside, under the cover, you're probably safe.

    the law around here in PA is that if so much sales come from food then theres no smoking. which is weird cuz this place had some buffet dinner goin on for some birthdays and softball event or something. real crappy place but paid decent.

    he said if its broken he'll buy me a new one but it has to be a vox cuz he loves the beatles and thats what they used lol. but like cmon it was 900$ why would you spray it?!?!?!
