I could ask this in the Gallery Hardwoods section (and might still), but you guys have the experience with woods for basses, so here goes: I love my thumb bolt-on's ovankol. The feel of the wood grain is sweet! I like my Thunderbass as well, but it has a definite finish on it...not glossy, but you can still feel it. With the Warwick, it feels like wood and only wood. How does Warwick treat their wood (with what)? Next, what woods can I get away with treating this way? To put it another way, I'm choosing my body woods right now, and while looks do matter, the feel under my hands is just as important to me. So, I really want to take that natural-feeling Warwick-type of approach to finishing my woods...are there body, top, back woods I should stay away from because of this? thank you gentlemen (and ladies?)!
