    Hey guys... I just got a Warwick Streamer 5 LX SE in an oil finished spalted maple. But it actually looks like poplar to me. I want to finish it in a translucent gloss cherry burst finish.

    But my local painter tells me that once a bass is finished in oil, it can never be refinished again due to the oil sinking in about an 1/8th of an inch.

    What I am doing is either confirming what he has informed me of or I would like to know if there are any other options. Are there any pro painters on this board?

    Please let me know if I have any options.

    Peace
