    Ok I just bought a us peavy cirrus 5 it's a walnut top and body with pau Ferro board. It has a worm spot and I want to get it looking smooth again. I did oil it and them wipe it with a clean cloth. I used fret dr. Which has lemon oil and a few other oils. I've used it on fretboards before. Anyway I was told a very light sanding with 0000 steel wool would smooth it then I could reoil it. Would appreciate any help on this.

    If your bass has an oil finish you can sand it very carefully and then oil it again.

    What would you use to sand it? 0000 steel wool. Or a fine grit sandpaper?
