Refinishing a bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by count_funkula, Dec 20, 2001.


  1. What all is involved in refinishing a bass? Do you sand the original finish off or use some kind of chemical?

    I found a purple (gag!) Yamaha that I'm going to buy if I think I can refinish it myself. What kind of paint should I use on it?

    Duh......

  3. You should do a search for stripping and refinishing, CF. There's lot's of good tips available. The poly finish on the Yama might best be done at a commercial dip and strip place.
