I e-mail Warwick about this, but thought maybe someone here had some experience ... I recently bought a '93 Warwick Thumb 4 string fretless. First of all, the bass is awesome - I think it may be one of the best fretless basses that I have ever played, just an incredible mwah, great neck ... I love it. And, I got it for a steal. However, I mentioned it was a '93, and unfortunately the bass looks like it hasn't been waxed since '93. There are two "light areas" on the bass that coincide with where the body meets the bass, so I am assuming they are sweat/moisture marks - these are areas that the wood has lightened considerably more than the rest of the bass. No cracks or anything, but the bass needs a wax desperately. I plan on oiling the back of the neck and the fretboard with linseed oil (same as i do with my other basses). No wax for those areas. But for the body - Should I oil the body before I wax to put some moisture back in the bass, or should I just wax it? I am sure it will need several coats of course, but the wood looks a little dry ... How do I get rid of the "light" areas on the bass? The Warwick site says to try steel wool on the neck for "chalky" areas, but this seems a little different, plus it looks like the white areas have been there for awhile. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
