My next Warmoth project is a Walnut J-bass body with Wenge J-neck and gold hardware. I want it to have a natural finish to let the beauty/tone of the wood show through. But I also want to seal and protect the wood from chipping/denting/cracking. The neck I will probably wipe down with some Warwick wax and the fingerboard with some lemon oil. The body I'm kind of up in the air about. I've done other basses with polyurethane and nitrolacquer, but when I used those it hid the tone of the wood. I'm leaning toward a stain for color and possibly a danish oil or tung oil as a protectant. Whats good for protecting without smothering?
