Hi, everyone. I've been thinking of picking up an Epiphone Toby Standard IV as my first bass. The problem I'm having is that only 2 stores carry it in my country - in one it's totally out of stock and customer service told me they don't even know whether they'll order them anymore. The other one only has the ebony finish version, and anything else would need to be paid for in advance and I'd have to wait 3+ months to get it. The finish may not be the most important part of an instrument, but I just hate how the ebony version looks. Just flat black, too glossy, and it totally drowns out the nice black hardware. But I'm sort of forced to get it if I want to start playing anytime soon... So my question is, if I get one, could I refinish the body to look more like the walnut satin version? If so, what kind of oil/varnish/whatever would I go for? I have some experience with taking guitars apart, assembling them and sanding down finishes, so that's not a problem, I'm just really unsure how to get that nice walnut satin look and make it last. Any advice from someone with more experience?
