To Refinish or Not To Refinish?

    Hi, I just got this Gibson Bass V. I like the feel and sound, but I hate the color. It didn't cost me a fortune so I'm not that concerned about losing value. The finish is faded and uneven, and has a fair amount of nicks and dings. I want it to have a black body and natural neck. The back of the neck is finished the same as the body.


    I'm quite handy, but have little experience with stripping and refinishing...I would like to do this myself though. Am I nuts?
