    Lately i've been noticed white pastey build up on my neck! (lol sounds funny) I have a Fender Jazz MIM and i've had it fro four weeks. I also hae black stuff on my strings, anybody know what this is?
     
  2. Could be storing issues, where do you put your bass when it's not in action?

    Probably grime from your hands, wash them before you play, or wipe the bass down afterwards.

    i wouldn't use anything more than water, and dry it up immediately. I really don't know what soap might do. Mabey some kind of rubbing alcohol would work too.

    Yes, cleanliness is the key here.
