    Wink NGD - S2 Mira Semi-hollow and it stinks!

    My S2 Mira semi-hollow arrived today and well, it stinks! It may be because I'm nursing a minging hangover, but the smell of the fretboard is just yuk! I think it must be fish oil or something? Anyway my fingers smell like I've been working in a sardine factory! No big deal obviously, it'll go with time (or maybe tomorrow when I'm less fragile, I won't care!).

    Apart from that the guitar out and out rocks, haven't had much time with it yet but digging the vibe so far. Trying not to bond too much as I have plans for this one, hopefully start works in a couple of days once I get a few other jobs done.

    Oh and you can call me a troll for the misleading thread title, I won't mind

    I can smell it from here! Congrats!

    First it's guitar fingerboards, then it's sniffing bicycle seats, and from there...well...you don't want to be that guy.

    Be careful.

    I do like that s2 , enjoy her.

    My kid licks my Prs's and sends me a pic while I'm at work. She thinks it's funny but I used some crappy tasting polish in them now lol

    Smell will go away ....

    I don;t know why, but do you think that smell could be coming from the glue that goes on the fretboard / neck? I mean, just brain storming. Anyway, just like the awesome smell that fades away, the stinky one should fade away too.

    Sounds like somebody's using the wrong kind of slide! Not be rude, but how long have you been at this? 'Cause that's not what they mean by 'scales'!

    Congrats on the new ax! Seafoam green looks very cool on that.

    And that smell?

    So are you going to name the guitar Stinky, Smelly, or Stench?

    Personally, I'd go with Stonker or Stanker, just because.

    Although "Wanda" would also be a cool name!

    I imagine it's the sea foam that smells all fishy... What did you expect?
