Hi everyone, Just spent a while reading over old posts relating to tung oil as I''ve just purchased a bass made from Warmoth parts with an alder body that has been tung oiled. I'm wondering if I can use Woodburst Pure Color Transparent Stains over the existing finish to add a bit of color to the decidedly uninspiring look of the natual alder. Is this possible? Alternately, I've been reading up on the Danish Oil Finish and I'm assuming that if I wanted to do that to my bass I'd have to strip the existing tung oil finish. Am I right on that? If so, what would I use to strip the existing tung oil finish? Sandpaper and elbow grease? Okay...one more question while I'm at it. As I mentioned above, I'd like to do something colorwise. If the Woodburst option isn't viable, is there anything that can go over the existing tung oil finnish to add a bit of color? Or, if the proper route is to sand and start over, is the preferred method to stain the wood or fill the grain and then add color by suspending it in the laquer? I was reading last night in Melvyn Hiscock's 'Make and Build Your Own Electric Guitar' that staining an unfinished body is a bad idea because the end grain will soak up more stain than the rest of the body, so any advice on this is greatly appreciated! Thanks much for all your time, J.
