    I was hoping this is the correct area to ask for assistance. I'm currently putting together a 5 string jazz bass. Body made of Swamp ash, Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard with M.O.P. Block inlays. I've been reading quite a few sites that say that you should go with Tung Oil, or you should go with a Natural Wood Dye, or that you can use amber color nitrocellulose Aerosol to get a nice color. Just looking to have that clear/amber color that looks so good on 75 Jazz basses. What works best on ash and Maple and what is going to get me the result that looks something like this

    I'm hoping all of you can share with me your wisdom and experience.
    Thx,
