I'm looking for some advice on a new bass I bought. Its all fine and dandy except its got this somewhat dorky puple paint-job. I was thinking that I could sand it back to the wood and then finish it like a Warick. My main question is how do you do it? I know there's oil involved at some point, and I'm pretty sure its not the motor variety, but thats about it. Is there some hideously complicated technique to it all, or is it just a case of: "Grease me up, Woman!!"? I'd be grateful for any advice on how to go about this. Oh, and the body is basswood, if that makes any difference.
