I have bass which has a very dull-looking cocobolo top. The luthier used a combo of UV protectant and carnuba wax. I know it has vivid reds and oranges "hiding" in the wood because the seller of the board, Gilmer Woods, sold it as Exhibition Grade Panamanian cocbolo.....( and I saw pics of the board.....WHEW!!!). My questions are - > Can you refer me to anyone who can/would consider re-doing this top plate to bringing out the knockout colors and put a nice gloss on it that doesn't look like it's a goopy top encased in an inch of poly? > As for the final finish, which oil should I ask for ??? Behlen Teak Oil is highly reco'd for rosewoods. But I know Behlen Tung oil is respected, too..........then again, I'd consider Behlen Violin Varnish if you all thought is the way to go. Any guidanace is very much appreciated. I don't have the skills or tools. Plus, it's probably a tough job with all the electronics, hardware, and an abalone inlay on the body. Thanks!!!!
