I know this probably sounds like a really dumb, obvious question, but I was just wondering if there is any way to lighten wood? Like, without painting, or anything that would make it useless. I want to make my Silvertone P bass look like a Fender 60's Relic P Bass: I was gonna get some Fender Original '62 P Bass pickups, spray the body black, put a white outline around the pickguard, and that would all make it look pretty well like it. The fingerboard is still rosewood, and too dark to look correct. I don't have another $100+ to spend on a P Bass neck.
