This is my first in progress custom bass made by Kraken. J clone with Moses neck, Villex p/u and ABM bridge. She has mahogany core with walnut top. Due to some error in communication with Kraken, they finished body with oil. My first intention is poly finish for ease of maintenance. Problem is, I like the look of oil on walnut. Kind of classy looking... Some Tbers say it's possible to apply poly finish on oil finished wood. So luthiers at Kraken are experimenting that idea on some scrap wood now. Korea has distinct four seasons with massive temp/humidity variation, so I'm not feeling secure about oil finished bass. But... she's so beautiful with oil on her body... I've got the impression from reading many messges here that finish is not crucial to tonal characteristics of bass. So my concern is only look and maintenance. What should I do? I think it's like being in between two girls. One is beautiful but rather harder to please. Another is kind of homely but possible good house keeper... Please don't telll me to choose girl with bigger bosom.
