I have this wonderful Westone Electra bass with the extra fretless neck.  I love everything about this bass except that it weighs a ton.  What makes it so heavy?  Is it the finish? It seems the finish/paint is very thick. I was thinking about stripping the body and refinishing in black again.  Does the finish of the bass a big part of the tone. Also I wonder if this would diminish the price of it. I hear this model is worth a lot. BASS - What makes my bass so heavy? My_bas10

What makes your bass heavy? Solid Maple!
No, the finish does not contribute significantly to the overall weight. The tuners probably weigh more.
Yes, it is a rather unusual and collectable model.
So No, I would not strip the finish unless it's a total mess.
