    I just got a used non graphite Status Energy 5. It's been modded with an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp.

    Should I do anything to protect the finish where the clear coat has been worn off? It's a thin satin poly finish. 97409668_10157648761887804_5544327120097902592_o.jpg 97884675_10157648761717804_3780674438664552448_o.jpg

    The bass is really easy to play. A bit on the heavy side though

    Handsome bass! My favourite bass is a Status Energy 4 string with a graphite neck. (In my avatar) The body (mine's walnut: is yours the same?) is in much worse condition than yours : you could experiment with beeswax or a light oil, which would do no harm I think.

    Good Catch, congrats!

    I had an Energy 5string, it was my only bass for 11 years straight until 2005. Great instrument. Heck, I even chose my screen name after that bass. :cool:

    The body ist swamp ash. I'd Just leave the finish as is if I were you. It tells a story.
