    I know it may sound crazy but my new MTDs have a smell that's just intoxicating. I'm not sure if it's the sent of exotic woods (Pistachio and roasted walnut) or the finish coat Mike uses. Anyone else ever experience this?

    Although I haven't bought a "brand new" bass in quite a while.
  3. The one that got me the most on that is my EDC-700 That Luthite has an odd scent. Over the past few years though, the aroma is only in the electronics cavity, sometimes I take the rear plate off just to get a whiff.

    Nothing like the smell of a Birdsong.

    Whenever I take my basses through the Bass Guitar Wash, I always ask them to spray it with "New Bass Smell".

    I hope the "B" in "Bass" wasn't a typo..........

    Huffing that new bass smell is addicting and G.A.S is a b*tch waiting to show her ugly head around every corner so watch yourself.
