In addition to his usual gift of cash, my father gifted me with this Squier Affinity Jazz that he picked up quite cheaply at a Goodwill store. It is the 4 string on the right. As you can see, I already have a bass in this particular color combo. Since I'm not particularly keen on having duplicates in my collection, I'm considering stripping this finish and doing a black ink finish on the bare wood, and some type of wax or satin over that. Also wanting to replace the neck w/ a maple fret board one. My questions stand as: 1) is it worth it to strip the finish on this bass? And 2) what is your preference on stripping application? Heat gun? I have one of those. CitriStrip? Never used it before. Something else?
