    so my warwick has a satin finish, ocean blue, and i love it but its taken some wear and when it gets sweaty its rather uncomfortable to play.

    ive always wondered if i could just sand it down a bit to get rif of the imperfections that have accumulated and then refinish it with something that will protect the finish.

    fisrt is this possible? and second how would i do this? i wouldnt object to having it done professionally but id like to know how its done

    It can be done... people refinish guitars all the time.

    I'd probably recommend using some kind of stripping agent to take most of that finish off, and then the re-finishing would vary with the type of wood... Many of the standard Warwick (German, right?) basses use bubinga bodies, and they just finish them in oil and wax. You could also use any number of products found at Stew-Mac, Guitar Re-Ranch, LMII, etc...

    I'm partial to Tru-Oil, as it leaves a nice shine, the fumes aren't particularly bad for you, and it's easy to do.
