What's up y'all... I just picked up a new LP and it doesn't have the vanilla smell !!! Where did it go !? It smells like a musty lumber yard as strange and ridiculous it may sound i feel it diminishes the Gibson experience by losing that unique heavenly scent.

I just picked up a new classic and the smell is there. My dog even likes it! He couldn’t take his nose off it. I had to give him a good minute or so going over it before I could play it lol

I keep hearing that "the smell" is the case and not the lacquer.
Been hearing a few comments about the new cases not smelling the same.

my 2020 tribute had a slight smell that's fabulous, but it's not strong by any means.

ain't that the truth, i've had one of my Taylors for 20ish years now and each time i open its case, its heaven on earth and then i open the others and its just meh.... The Gibsons usually dissipate, so i don't think so much of them TBH.
