Unfortunately, it's already back home. But it raised an ethics question. Do I tell the owner that there were bugs in the axe and embarrass him? Yes, I did kill them as they exited. It appeared there had been something spilled on the guitar and the trapeze had some sticky goop on one end. This is where they exited from. Took 6 Q-tips soaked in alcohol to clean it up.Hope they're not German roaches. Hope you killed them. Spray RAID into the F-holes (just a little, don't soak the wood) and tape up the F-holes for 24 hours.
When I got stuff from the shop of my now dead amp tech and friend, I always had to watch out for that. He was a good guy but he had...sanitation issues. Roaches were a consequence of that.
