    Just got a 2006 FNA Jazzman. Looks like it's been sat around for a number of years. The wood seems quite 'dry' including the neck too. What's the best product I can use to treat this?

    Also, the finish is a maple top which has a light stain on it. Over the years there is a 2inch square are where someones thumb has rested and it's wore through this stain so now appears much lighter than the rest of the body. It's not massively noticable but if there was something I could do to make it less apparent I would be happy!

    For the neck fingerboard : turpentine spirit to clean. Let it dry out, then Lemon/Walnut oil.
    For the maple, do not use the oil. What is the finish you have ? Oiled or satin ?
    How are your lutherie's skills ? (in order to see if you can dismantle the bass and sand it son...).
