  1. i want to finish by bass with a natural finish but i am not sure what to use, many people have said to use a clear varnish, seems like that would work, but im not sure. im not too knowledgable about finishing.

    The only way you are going to find out what you like is by buying a few products ad trying them out on scrap wood. Try Fornby's Tung oil finish, Tru-Oil and spray Polyurathane. All 3 of those products should only add up to about $20 at Walmart.....T

    Try out some danish oil too! Like Watco and Deft. I like it. Just make sure to get the 'natural' kind......I'm not big on the other colors.
