I just noticed this on another website:
The Distresssed Model now includes a special perfume inside the "F" holes, developed to duplicate exactly the smell inside the original Loar Gibson mandolins. Each Distressed model is unique.
What exactly is that smell? Varnish and dust? Sweat? Beer? Isn't this a little over the top? I'm not sure how I would react if somebody came up and asked to smell my "F" holes.
