    I am in the process of building a bass.
    Everything is going well but I would like some advice on finishing it.

    I want a high gloss fininsh with a butterscoch tint.

    I have used tung oil on antique furnature and it came out nice after many coats and much time.

    I have also restored a few old cars and painted them with multi-coat laquer rubbing out each coat and polishing the final coat.
    That is more work than I want to put in to finishing my bass.

    I have heard of basses being finished with Tru-Coat gunstock oil.
    I am not familiar with how to apply it or how it will hold up. Does it provide a hi-gloss surface?

    Any other options?

    note: It is now sealed with laquer based sealer.

    Thanks.
