I'm attempting to sand the ugly, childish paint off of my Washburn Taurus t14. I already converted it to fretless (it's was an alright procedure and sounds okay for my first time doing so)
I want to know if any of you know how to sand the entire bass body. By this I mean: do you have any pointers or past experiences?
I already disassembled the bass. I took the neck off, I took out the pickups and hardware.. So, my main question is how to handle the wood.
-Grit of sandpaper
-Direction to sand
-How deep to sand
-Should I put some kind of wood finish on afterwards
-what to expect
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
(Please don't discourage me by saying that it will not turn out. Lie if you must.
I went through all the trouble of dissecting her, and she is not going back together without SOME alterations. And remember, it's already basically a "project" bass and I rarely play it due to the "toy" look that the glossy color provides. So, hopefully she will look pretty afterwards and I can dive into the study of fretless bass)
