I have a copy of a Fender Jazz, I made it about 20 years ago from a pre-made body and neck. It was finished in nitrocellulose laquer, and I would like to sand it down and refinish with tung oil / Watco Danish oil. I still haven't decided which to use, although I understand that you may get a better shine with tung, while Watco Danish will seep in a little deeper and does not build on top of the wood. Anyhow, while I'm there, the body is heavy, and I would like to sand it down to reduce the weight some. I think that the wood may be alder, it's two-piece with no laminated top. My question is, is this a viable approach? The tone of the bass will probably change a little, and I would like to not have a pile of sawdust where a body once was trying to get the body down to an acceptable weight. As it is, I'm redoing the electronics, switching from old DiMarzios to Bartolini's, so I will have no baseline for comparison.
