I did this a while ago, but just now decided to post it for some reason. I had a lot of fun turning my crappy old plywood bass that you see in the first pic into a thing of beauty in the second. I did a couple coats of stain as well as finish by hand, added the pickguard plus new knobs, and replaced the neck altogether.
