    Refinish 95`Fortress Masterman - From French Violet to Natural Oil

    Hi guys! I found a nice Fortress Masterman from 95 and since I was searching for a 4 string I jumped on it. It has a french violet finish, which I kind of like it, but too many belt marks, scars that I wanted to get rid off made me go for a complete refinish to Natural Oil. It´s body is...

    Oil, Wax or both?

    I have 3 older Warwick's all of which I picked up used so I'm not sure if they were waxed or oiled in the past. Any suggestions? I had a 92 Dolphin Pro i 5 a few years ago and I used Linseed oil and that looked pretty good. I want to protect the bass and would like for them to look pretty but...

    Natural Oil Finish

    Hey guys, here is just one question that came to my mind a few days ago, when I saw that you can order Amaranth / Purple Heart in the Custom Shop. As far as I know, Amaranth will loose its colour when being exposed to the sun. So usually, you cover it with an UV blocking finish. Now I know...

    Natural oil finish -

    Hi, I have an 09 Corvette Zebrano $$ special edition. I'm slightly confused about how I'm supposed to wax it. Some people are telling me that I should wax the neck (not the fingerboard though, obv!) others are saying only the body needs waxing. Also should I really need to wax it once a...

    Sanding (Natura Oil Finish)

    Wow would you go about sanding the front of an SSI natural oil finish? Just to go a bit deeper and get some extra dirt out and such.

    Oil Finish Ding Repair

    There once was a tech link regarding oil finish ding repair. I see it referenced in a few posts but it seems the link was removed or moved. Any one have that info? I have a '97 Corvette with a very small ding by the intonation screw on the "e" string (I wonder how that happened?!) Dang! I...

    Refinishing an oil finish bass

    Has anyone ever successfully refinished an oil finish to high gloss. I realise I may be flamed over this and people may say 'why', but I've recently bought an LX broadneck, and the way I sweat at gigs is gonna ruin it.

    Oil vs. high polish

    Has anyone ever A-B switched a oiled Thumb (or any Wick) versus a high polish to hear a differnce the "sealed" finish makes (made from same woods). I love the shine of high polish but I think it will effect the sound and I never had the chance to play a high polish.

    Anyone tried sunflower oil for fretboard cleaning?

    Today I've checked all drugstores around and found no lemon oil there. So I tried cleaning the fretboard with refined sunflower oil (there always is some in kitchen). Pretty the same effect but cheaper and no nice odour.

    Oil, Satin, or Natural Satin finish on fretboards?

    Cleaning a natural oil finish?

    A local dealer has a Katana NT in natural oil for sale pretty cheap, but it's been on the floor a while, and it's all smudged up. It also has a broken nut, but it's "new", i.e., never sold. I could probably get the price down under $1500, but I'd like to be able to get it clean. Is that possible?
