There's obviously a huge spectrum here. To be specific, I've got a 66 Ampeg Gemini II that has a significant amount of tar on the chassis(its pungent).

Sit it out in direct sunlight and where it gets a breeze.  This may take a number of days so stay on top of your weather forecasts.  No, I don't mean leave it out 24 hours at a time.  I mean you're going to have to take it in and out for several days.

dryer sheets around the speaker cone for about a week...and a good wipe-down with something like 409 or Mr. Clean. I have serviced amps that reeked so bad I had to work on them outdoors...:barf:

If you're still smelling smoke try Unsmoke Degrease-All

the problem with that stuff is  1) it is freaking expensive and 2) it is only for hard surfaces, so it won't help the grille cloth or the speaker cone
