I was at the music sture today and there was a used Ibanez EXB404 (or so the tag said) with a hardshell case for something like $180, seemed like a fair deal to me. I kinda like the look and feel of it, and it was in good shape. Anyway, that's all beside the point. The fingerboard on this bass smelled similar to gasoline, and it was strong enough that I could smell it while playing (i.e. not sniffing the fingerboard). Has anyone had a similar experience? I thought maybe that was the smell of a cleaning product. Anyone know about a product that might smell like this? How about a way to get it off? I'm pretty sure it's just the fingerboard that smells. I don't think that it's the result of someone trying to remove stickers with gas, and it isn't a case of the stinky ergodyne finish. So yeah, any thoughts?
