    I build guitars and sell them. Strings, too
    Has anyone ever finished a bass with only wax? My piece is Goncalo Alves and Padouk, and its looking pretty good with out applying any finish so far. So, would just applying wax without any type of oil be a bad idea?

    Acording to Warmoth, both of those woods are naturally "waxy" and don't require any finish at all.
