Thread: That SMELL!!

  1. #1

    That SMELL!!

    The rosewood on my 2012 D55 SMELLS AWESOME. I've owned more than a few rosewood guitars and I gotta say, it's a stronger smell than I've experienced before. Sometimes I'm walking through the room where she hangs on the wall and my nose catches a whiff. Of course then I'm playing for the next 45 minutes while forgetting what I was walking through the room for. That is all, carry on.

    Several years ago we had a thread on "do you smell your guitar?". The consensus was "yes, I do!"

    This thread. My Tacoma rosewood DV-6 and F-47 both still have a sweet, fruity and very pleasant odor to them.

    Ya know, that F-30R I bought from RichardP had a wonderful smell I could not put my fingers on. Meant to ask what type of polish he may have used.

    Perhaps it is the N Hartford rosewood, but I don't notice it on my F-512...or maybe I need to pull that out more often.

    Most of the pain associated with my playing comes from having to listen to me. frono

    My NH F-30RCE smells great! I know I'm only smelling the wood, though...

    My Martin 00 16 custom 12 fret delights me every time I open the case. The hog aroma is special.

    I love the smell of soundhole in the morning, whiff away.
