I CONFESS.......I'm a smeller. Guess that's better than being smelly. Of course that also depends on what exactly "smelly" is. [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif] My Padauk Washburn N4 had the best scent I've ever laid my nose on. Talk about the "scent" of a woman!!!! My JVM 210H came fresh outta the box. Beautiful scent!!

DH mentioning the smell being a powerful trigger for memories: Certainly right!

From time to time I get puzzled when I come to a room and it strikes me: "It smells like "Marshall" in here!".

The smell of my brand-new 1960 4x12'' I bought when I was 16 years old simply is implemented in my brain. So it's not only hot tubes that provide the "Marshall scent"!
