Hello! I am in the process of constructing a bass, and the only thing I have had an issue with so far is deciding on a finish. I have a fairly nice quilted maple top for my bass, and what I would like to do is keep the very light, almost white, color of the natural, unfinished maple. I understand light will naturally color the maple, so it would also be nice to use something that could prevent or slow this process, if that is at all possible. I have the facilities to apply most finishes, so that should not be an issue unless it is extremely exotic, in which case I may not be able to obtain it anyways. I attempted to search for information pertaining to this topic, but I am still fairly new to the forums, and I may have just used the wrong keywords. Thank you all for your help!
