If you find a resonance with exotic JPC, you are certainly beyond the naive qq quark model. Plausible JPC-exotic candidates = hybrids, glueballs (high mass), maybe multiquarks (fall-apart decays).

Nonetheless here are some references and results: G decaysStrong MPs dependence of the G-PsPs coupling reported in an early LGT study. This complicates nn-ss-G mixing angle determinations from f0(1500) decays that assume flavor-blind G decay amplitudes.
