    okay, the time has come to wax my new warwick thumb 5. im guessing you just put some on a rag, apply it, let it sit, then take it off. i dont know if this is right...also, how much wax do i need, and do i wax the top and bottom of the body? thanks.

    And for Pete's sake, don't 'wane' it!!! :)

    Actually, using beeswax, this technique should work fine. You only want enough wax to rub in... You want to rub your dampened rag on the beeswax to get it on the rag before applying it to the bass. Cloth Diapers are the preferred cloth/rag to use when doing this... Lint-free and soft enough for a baby's bottom!
