Something to make my bass shine

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Kraig99, May 31, 2002.

  1. I receently purchased a bass body off of ebay. What could I do to make it shine the way that my Fender does, without damaging the paint finish?
    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    if it's already painted and finished, i've found that carnuba wax works great for keeping a shine. It's sold at most guitar stores now as "guitar wax" but its the same as car wax for as much as I can tell.
