Wondering what sort of upgrade/refurbish work people are doing to older basses. I have a 1995 StingRay5. Pickups have rust on the heads, but still sounds great. Neck has years of sweat stains but plays very well. Could use a fret job I suppose.

You can clean the neck with a mixture of water and murphy's oil soap. I would take it off for that. A soft toothbrush can help get out some of the more ground in grime.

After that you can re-apply oil and wax.

For the pickup pole pieces, some might take off the cover to get all of the oils/salt off. There are some things you can use to stop further corrosion.
