    I'm building a fretless bass from parts (Bradoni, in the UK if anyones interested). It's a neck thru affair, so the body and neck was bought as one lump. The neck is maple, and the body ash. I've filled in the fret slots with this wood in a tube type stuff, from StuMac. I stain it yet, as I'm not over keen on the body tone, it looks a bit like pine. So I might go fo an antique stain.

    I have a Warick Thumb BO, with the standard natural finish. I'm after doing something similar, but I'm not quite sure how. I've heard that tung oil in what I need, and have been advised to add a couple of thin coats of polyurathene for a bit of added protection.

    Does anyone know the exact process Warwick (or others) use to achieve their finishes?

    Cheers
