    On neck and/or on the bass body, If you like your bass with satin or oiled finish, Welcome on board.
  2. That's nice! What is it?
  3. Beautiful lines on that R-Bass - looks very comfortable.

    I love a nice slippery satin finish too. It's the 'all-weather' finish that doesn't gum-up on those sweaty gigs :). Here's mine:

    How would you do a satin finish like that all weather one mentioned above?

    I'm such a sucker for satin finish!!!

    ESPECIALLY when they start wearing down!
    MY GOD.

    Unfortunately, my basses all have a poly finish that could stop a bullet.

    I really like the smooth feel and easy care of this fretless. Even after 7 years, it still looks new.

    Hi. How are the finishes on your basses holding up?

    I bought an SR750 no less than a few months ago and I have already begun scraping off some of the satin finish from the back of the bass. A couple spots are already down to bare wood. If I so choose I can make an indent with my fingernail. I'm thinking it will look "relic'd" within a few years of steady gigging. :meh:

  14. The Cirrus should be an oil finish.

    Oil finished basses are more than welcome to this Suave Thread. :cool:
  16. Gotcha. I wasn't hatin' or anything, just figured "satin" applied to the various poly finishes that weren't buffed to the glassy feel.

    You are right technically, I've owned both finished style basses and if you finally got a pro-results like my DB with an Antiqued varnished finish, you will get a smooth finish anyway.

    *post your Cirrus if you want to. :bassist:
