    Hello - I just defreted a cheap bass (OLP) because I was not using it and so far so good, the only thing is that I don't know what kind of finish I'm supposed to put on it once I'm done sanding the whole thing. It's there a special finish you have to use?
    It's all maple.

    Would Polycrylic clear finish do the job?
     
  3. If you do use poly, get the minwax hand rubbed poly and use a lint free cloth to rub in on thin.

    I think that's what I got.
    Thanx for the reply.
