    I use those Glade Wallflowers in every room with some type of natural wood scent smoldering in them. Teakwood is my favorite. :woot:

    Awesome. Thanks for all the great replies.

    As for the cheap case thing, yeah I built quite a few Super Strats and still have quite a few guitars sitting in those POS soft cases, where every single zipper broke. And broke quick every F ing time.

    Just do not have the $ to spend on much of anything these days . . . .

    I use SKB cases for my Fender's, Gibson Custom Shop cases for my LP's.
    Sure they cost a lot, but I take care of my stuff.

    @Mitchell Pearrow
    Do you remember that smell?
    It is one of the greatest smells on Earth, is it not?

    It is a smell you cannot shake, like good weed.
    It gets the juices flowing and you know exciting things are going to happen. :D

    In the photo above is something you can try, it’s a cloth ring that they put in portable toilets.
    I always try and get them on the job site when the service the portable toilets, I put them under the seat of my truck, because I smoke in it, and it works for that!
    Cheers Mitch

    If it’s any thing like castor 927 and high octane yes, my V’s case smells like vanilla!
    But I did have a cat pee on one of my straps, I used full strength simple green and sunlight for 2 years before it went away!

    No way man. I was talking about nitrous oxide used it street and strip burners.
    Where did you people grow up?
    You do not know what nitrous oxide smells like.
    That is really a shame if so.

    I hope some of you know that smell.

    I am so sad at this moment. :(

    It’s been since the very early 70’s since I have seen/smelt a top fuel dragster or funny car! Cheers

    I was not just talking funny cars or dragsters.
    They still use nitrous even since I was a teenager.

    I am sad, very sad.

    Go and find yourself some good racing, real good racing.

    As STYX once said, the best of times.

    But the very distinct smell of castor 927 is something I shall never forget, even put it in my weed eater, chain saws!
    That and the smell of wet dirt is the shit brother.
    No need to be sad !!
    Cheers Mitch
