    There is a Fender Roscoe Beck for sale on Ebay for a good price but the owner says that he removed the shiny finish with what I guess is fine steel wool. How negatively does this affect the finish? Would the finish be significantly more susceptible to damage? Would this be a good buy at a sub $500 price or should it be avoided?

    Never mind, I see this bass has a stripped truss rod! :eek:
