    I'm considering painting my bass. Just a few important questions:

    1. How to remove the current varnish (without damaging the wood)?

    2. What kind of stain can be used that won't damage the wood or affect the bass' sound?

    3. The same thing as in 2 but 'bout the varnish.

  2. Hi Buddy :)

    Please click the link below...
    It shows how I painted my bass some time ago.
    Many pages and pictures.
    Remember I am not a pro-luthier so please
    listen to what other more knowledgeable
    people might say !
