Is it just me or am i crazy but does anyone find the smell of guitars intoxicating. Yo i'm dead serious especially acoustic guitars they just have a smell that just takes me back to when i first start playing for a split second, maybe it's the wood or glue but i'd love to just bottle that certain scent that guitars have. You know you can just walk throgh a guitar store and the smell just seems like your home but when i ask 'em can i bring my bed and tv they throw me out. and can you tell me why?

peace out,

Hey I know exactly what your talking about! My acoustic gives off this delightful smell (it's the glue). I think my favorite guitar smell is when you put on a nie new coat of polish gives it the "new guitar smell". Hey maybe the reason they don't want you sleeping in there is because they want to hog it all. Well my beds calling me. Later.

Rehab may be an option for some of you. But actually I know what you mean.

I was sniffing my acoustic (as usual) and all of the sudden a riff hit me.....I'm starting to think the glue helps you think up guitar shtuff(riffs leads taps etc.).

i was sniffing my guitar recently for three hours straight, and then i forgot how to play. the doctors say i should be able to resume a "normal" lifestyle as soon as the left side of my body "wakes up"

Man! You guys are really strange. Sniffing your guitars and glue?! Personally, when I'm feeling a little randy, I like to turn the lights off and get a little down and dirty w/ my Ibanez.
