    I am looking at a recent Fender MIM Jazz Bass. It has a gloss finish in perfect shape. The color does not appeal to me. Can I put a new finish OVER the old one without elaborate prepping? Is it really less hassle than stripping the old coats first, and will it look as good? Is there a seal I can put over the old finish so it will not react with solvents in the new finish?

    Thanks!
