I just got a new guitar and the guy threw the hard shell case in free and said i just need to get the smell out of it. Its kind of like an old musty smoke smell. Ive already tried febreeze and putting a box of baking soda in it for a couple days but it didnt work. Does anyone know how to get the smell out? Id rather not throw it away becuase its a really nice and expensive hard shell case.

Try leaving the case open. If not you can buy those deodorizers you use for laundry or the house. They come in many forms, but I like the ones that come in these cool jelly looking beads.
Where do you live, and how's the weather most of the time? I had a very "smoky" smelling case, and I left it open outside for about 2 days, and it got rid of the smell.
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.
I like the smell of a new case.. it's like buying a new car.

Edit: I'll read the first post next time.

Um.... yeah the kittens thing sounds like it'll work.

If you got cologne you could try spraying that on it.

Gay & Lesbian I think, the box smelled funny
Greg what did you send me??
Just let it air out. It'll go away for the most part. However, be warned: it won't go completely away. My case smelled like pot when I got it, and my mom STILL asks me if I'm stashing weed in my guitar stuff since most of it smells like its been getting smoked out in a room full of pot smoke for about a week.

Which is odd, because I honestly don't smoke.

Fill it with horse5hit.

It's bound to get rid of the smoky smell....
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.
