    hey all, I have an early 90's G&L 2000 in clear blue. i got it used for an unbelieveable 150$. She plays great, but the finish is all messed up with cigarette burns , and scratches to the finish.
    I was thinking of sanding her down, and using an oil stain in her. What do you all recommend as fas as oils go? I was thinking of trying to capture the natural finish of the wood and grain, maybe even a clear oil, or a light brown one to accent the wood grain. thank yo for any advice!
