I have a guitar stand (made by Stagg) which I purchased on the internet to
save myself a couple of quid (lesson learned there).
It is ensially an A-Frame with a rubber moulding at the top which covers the
hinge but more importantly provided a rest for the back of the guitar to
It's this rubber piece that I have a problem with.
It's quite heavy duty industrial rubber and it stinks. It doesn't take long
for the smell to permeate the room.
It does smell heavily of rubber but I also wonder whether it could of come
from fire\\smoke damaged stock.
Had I bought it locally I would have returned it by now but as it was an
internet purchase the hassle and cost of the postage just isn't worth it.
So can anyone suggest a way of ridding the rubber of it's smell? I've tried
leaving it outside for a day to air but it is as strong as ever.
