  1. Do you?

    I know there are a already posts on this, but there seems to be a difference of opinion.

    I'd like to know how the masses do it.

    Nope, just the body. I think i read somewhere that the moisture from your hands is enough for the neck wood.

    In my early "7th heaven with a Warwick" days,I used to wax it completely,as reccomended on the W.site.After a few months I regreted this because there was a good ammount of dirt sticking on the bass,both on the neck and the body's most exposed parts (around the pots,above the PU's,etc).
    When I began transforming it (a fretted Streamer Stage I from '90,now a fretless),I just buffed out all the wax from everywhere...the hardest part to be cleaned was,you guessed,...the neck.When I got to the bare wood,I applied 6-7 layers of pure Tung oil (this took almost 14 months because pure Tung oil needs a LONG time to polymerize...but it worth it as long as the wood changed on something like bone),then I re-finished the entire bass as what it became...oil finish!
    No trace of (built overnight) dirt this time,only a clean,easy to maintain,fast neck.

    I just wax the body every month. Though for the neck, I give it a monthly shot of Gerlitz Guitar Honey.

    I too wax the back of the neck.. never the fretboard however. I basically wax the hell out of my Wariwcks for about 6 months, then I apply less and less frequently...

    Don't wax it but will give it a once over every so often with a very very very small amount of teak oil.

    No, I've found it more painful than shaving.:smug:

    Seriously, I mostly leave them alone, but will use Dr. Ducks AxWax not the paste.
  10. Thanks for your input guys ... I'm still not certain which I'll do...
