A polyurethane/chemical/maybe formaldehyde or glue odor coming from deep plush lining?
1 - - -I had guitar in overnight for first time and woke to practice, had to put it down and wipe with lemon oil, (which I only use once a year) as it had gotten lining odor contamination of polyurethane odor. Wondering now if it does any damage to guitar wood? Also, had to close case while practicing to not continue the odor trails. Help. What should I do, if anything? 2 - - - One More Thing: I noticed the case doesn' t stay OPEN. Is this normal for the type of case? I had to tear of ribbon between top and bottom , on end - - - just to keep it open. Bad design or what?
I just tried to let it air for 30 days, open, in a few positions, and put guitar back in once during this time--after ozone generator & baking soda treatment
, for a night. I took it out and not only is case still strongly foul, in a chemical way, the guitar is also, again. Yes I tried Fabreeze. I am choking and hope giving you my details will provide some sort of relief from someone. I hate to taint the company who made it, Crossrock,(CRA400CBK) since I ran into a guitar shop to buy alternate case and found odors in different brands too, though not as bad.
I had scheduled a return and when they came to pick it up I had just tried the ozone & baking soda and thought to give it a good try, but here I am, 2 wks. later and guitar is on ironing board in bedroom, case by window in living room, like most of this past month. Any ideas, other than tossing it out window? Any hardshell cases that have thick lining and no stank? I know you can't recommend products here, but I see that in every other post.
