It's an old trick I learned from collecting and passing on woodwind and brass instruments. No guitar case can have the kind of funk a wind instrument can develop from being put away wet and left to sit for a decade or two.Thanks for the comments and suggestions, guys. The consensus seems to be that ventilating the case for an extended period is worth trying. Scott's suggestion to expose the lining to sunshine strikes me as a way to accelerate the outgassing process. I'll try that and report back in two weeks or so. In the meantime, maybe Gibson's Quality Assurance team can check with their case supplier (TKL?) for an explanation.
