As some of you may know I dropped my bass not to long ago. Being the poor SOB that I am I can't get a new body for it so...what the heck I started fiddlin with the one I had. Figurin it's not gonna cause any more damage...this is what I came up with. All I did was sanded it down except for the sides...which is still the gloss black. Then I bought some $.25 sample of an American Walnut stain just to darken the natural ash a lil. Whadaya think...mind you I've never done anything like this...so we're talkin amateur hour!
