Hiya. My new bass has an oil finish, and it is made of swamp ash and maple. I don't know much about this kind of finish, and was wondering if any of you could provide information on how to take care of the bass. The bass seems to be a little more sensitive to dings; just pressing down my thumb nail leaves a little mark on the surface. I've heard refinishing can take care of some of the wear on an oil finish...is this true? How do I refinish my bass? How often do I need to do it? And, what is the deal with instrument wax? Will this offer more protection for the bass? Thanks for your help!
