I've been kicking around the idea of sanding and clear-coating the body of my bass but I know that would kill re-sale value pretty substantially. It's currently my #1 but we all know how things can change.. If you've ever made drastic, value-altering modifications to your bass, how long did you wait? What was your tipping point that made you think "Well, I'm gonna keep it forever anyway, might as well make it my own!"? Share some stories and post some pictures!
