Clear Coat on FBB??

    Why is it that I've never seen an FBB with a glossy clear coat finish? All the basses in his gallery look to have an oil finish or something similar to that. Maybe some people can inform as to why this is or set me straight. One of the two:D

    Go ask him over in the Luthier's Corner. He'd probably help a brother out.

    I don't have a spray booth, mainly. And I can't seem to find someone to who will spray for me. I've been pretty happy with oil and wax.

    Agreed. We only use tung-oil on our basses and couldn't be happier. IMO, nice wood wasn't meant to be covered in plastic:D
