Help removing stain on Warwick bass finish

Hello everyone,

 

A friend of mine has a Warwick Thumb Bass Bolt-On. As some of you may know, the bass is made of ovangkal wood and has a natural finish. There is a spot where he rests his thumb on the body that has turned bleach white, he assumes due to skin oils and sweat. The spot is smooth and is not rough or chalky.

 

The only advice he has received at this point is to use a synthetic Scotch scouring pad to remove the stain and then oiling the wood, but that sounds awfully harsh to us.

 

Has anyone had any experience with this type of experience? Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer!

I have that same issue on my 'wick Corvette. I've got a fairly noticeable spot right above a pickup, and then below it (when I'm just thumbing it). From what I've been told, it is from the oils in the skin, but also the fact that I didn't wax the bass more regularly. From just waxing it more often, I've gotten the stain to be less noticeable (it used to be white too, and now it's just off-colored).
