I always keep my string tuned and check all my basses every couple off weeks. I find that two of my basses hardly ever go out of tune, i also clean my fretboards every three months with Dr. Stringfellows lem-oil. only a drop and that goes a very long way. my strings are just wiped down with a soft cloth after use just as C Linton has said, the body is given a quick rub too to get off finger marks. ever few months I give the bodys a pollish with Gerlitz no1 wax and pollish, some of my basses are over 10 years old and still look new, only time i have to adjust the truss rods is if i change to a diffrent gadge of strings.
