: I've got an old Kay, same color as a new E. swingmaster. The finish on some
: areas of the lip, (between bout and top) is worn to the wood.
: Should I use Varathane on those edge areas to protect the bare wood,
: or would varnish be better?

: Also, would it be a good idea to use Watco oil (same color of course)
: on the scratches on the top, to make the top look a little better. (I don't want
: to refinish the whole Bass.)

: Also, what should I use to clean oil and dirt gunk off the rosewood fingerboard?

: Need advice from those who are experenced at this kind of thing.

I use a product called "Boogie Juice" which comes in a pen type container and you cut the felt tip to the shape you want, it's lemon oil based but also has some other cleaners and oils in it as well.It does say that you should never let any get on your varnish but I've been using it for a good number of years now and haven't had a problem yet.
You should be able to get it at any good music store.
