If I have to ship the bass, it's not a huge deal, but it'd be nice to avoid it. I have a Spector NS5 I'd like refinished in a solid metallic color (something like the classic Gibson goldtop). Poly would be fine (the original finish is poly and still intact). I'd lean toward just scuffing and spraying over the original poly, but I could be convinced to completely strip it and refinish. Only potential complication is that the Spector NS is neck-through and has a curved body both front and back, so it might not be a good project for the inexperienced. Thanks!
