BotTom, Without seeing the neck it would be impossible for any of us to give you advise. Can you take it to a professional luthier for a check before you buy?

That would be my best advise.

I agree that you should have the bass checked by someone who knows. However, some necks do not have a finish - over time the wood gets "rough" because the wood is raw. If raw isn't your think, you could lightly sand and put some tung oil to help protect it.
