Hi all, I wanted to make this as I haven't read any posts about my particular solution to the sticky string issue that Ubasses often have. Apart from Aquila's suggestion of baby powder, and another person's suggestion of Olive oil, I figured both solutions would be quite messy and ruin satin finish of my Kala Ubass/gunk up the open pores. I have recently tried out some automotive polishing compound and it has worked wonders! It's still not as slick as playing with flatwounds on my regular basses but it's still pretty good. I can now slide on my fretless Ubass and not drag along the strings. I will post an update on this thread in a week to see if the polished strings actually hold up.
