Weird urine smell on Jackson and SKB

Hey guys
I have recently purchased a Jackson Soloist SL3 in a SKB jackson Hard case
The inside of the case smells dreadful like urine and so dies the guitar. The smell on the body is no where near as strong as the smell on the neck, Its not like strong strong but I can just smell it when I play, this is bothering me, What can I do about it? Cheers.
The fretboard is rosewood by the way

Just clean the whole guitar with lemon oil, then you have a nice lime smell to it all

Don't oil the metals please... It doesn't harm but doesn't help and is harder to get off. The body neck and fretboard will smell great after being rubbed with lemon oil!

Has it been gigged? I bought an axe once that had seen its fair share of sweaty, smoke filled gigs and it absolutely REEKED of stale piss.

Bit of Dunlop 65 and a good clean sorted that out, although I had to throw the case away!

Wash it with good ol' fashioned soap and water. Use a nail brush if you want.

No, it won't. Its a guitar polish/cleaner, not an angle grinder!

As for the lemon oil, seriously, ONE DROP ONLY ON A RAG. Don't get nuts and use it like pledge, you will saturate your fret board and it will make it worse.

Dunlop 65 will do fine but I would just put lemon oil on the whole guitar since you need it to clean and moist the fretboard someday anyway.

To the above poster: I always DROWN my rosewood and ebony fretboards in lemon oil and let it sink in for a couple of hours, then I whipe the excess off and do it again.

That way I get great dark moisturised fretboards

Only use lemon oil on the neck, not the body. Dunlop 65 is fine for the body.

Lemon Oil will not harm the body, your guital has car paint on it, it won't damage.
You can just whipe the body with a dampened cloth and even some soap. Just don't touch metal.

Do you wash your car with Dunlop 65? I don't think so...

wut.

There's so much wrong with this post it's not funny. TS, DO NOT use water to clean your guitar. Your guitar isn't a car, it's made out of wood. The lemon oil is traditionally used to condition the wood on the fretboard. No it won't hurt your finish, but a proper body cleaner is better.

His Jackson has a polyurethane paint and NOT a nitrocellulose one. This is the same stuff applied to a car and it does NOT breath so there is no connection from the top of the paint to the wood of the body. Water cannot get in especially when you just use a dampened cloth (which means: dont soak it but make it moist).

When you play guitar good you sweat, does that harm your guitar? Not on a polyurethane finish...

Water COULD damage a guitar with nitrocellulose laquer when you soak it, but hell, I would even clean my '52 RI telly body with nitro paint with a dampened cloth, it will do no harm (just don't soak it)

I never troll.

(If I was I told you to piss over it yourself to neutralize the smell to you, or to rub it in with acid to get the smell off.)

For your interrest: Dunlop even has a 65 with Carnuba wax, which is the EXACT same product used in professional car waxing. Polyurethane = car paint. Does your car get damaged from water?

No but then again cars are made from aluminium/mild steel etc, relatively resistant to corrosion, however, wood is more of a complicated thing, tends to absorb water, i know it does have a lacquer on it but guitars dont come cheap etc... need the safest option haha
