    Does the blackwood need to be waxed? I see there's a tin of wax in the user kit.

    I'm no scientitian but I'd say pretty much any unfinished timber would need wax/oil etc to prevent moisture levels from fluctuating.

    What about the maple backside? Wax also? I know they say keep lemon oil away from maple. Wondered if that applies to waxing as well.

    To be sure get some unicorn sperm, always works 100%! And to make it clear, because there were some confusions about this in the recent past: the body of the BASS needs the waxing!

    Another problem solved! 8:
