    Dear all master, i own a bass built by unknown luither, which it has very minimal finish, and the overtune is kind of dark, lately, i find someone who can spray paint lacquer for me, so i have a question....
    i had my hand on the warwick and i find the natural oil finished one has more warm soft and wood tone while the clear finished one ( both steamer I, neck thu all maple in my case) has a more bright and high tone, will it be owing to the lacquer finish?
    or any other reasons?

    i hope the lacquer and reduce the dark tone a little bite. :help: :help: :help: :confused:
