    i'm thinking of buying a warwick, and i notice lots of people talking about waxing them. is this necessary for all warwicks? and is it possible i should do it to my other basses? never thought of it before, and all posts i find about it seems to concern warwicks only

    Warwick recommends using their specially formulated "wax" to keep the wood in good condtion to keep it from fading and cracking. Its not like waxing a car, where you are looking for a nicely buffed shine. It is more like cleaning and nurturing finely made wood furniture. Only the warwicks with natural finishes require this.

    Yeah it's a beeswax type of wax ... used on both my natural Warwick and my natural Spector for years.



    :) ... Seems to work great ... a tin of it came with the bass.
