Finally I'm restoring my TB2000 #217, I'm taking it to a especialized business they recommend me to change the original body with a new (exact same shaped) exotic wood body (Zebra wood or cocobolo) I really like the look of this woods but I don't know if this would affect the "original" value of the bass. żAny recomendations? thank's!

is there something wrong with the original body other than it being refinished?

i guess as long as you keep the original body (so you can include it if you sell the bass) then you won't lose value. but in nearly every case an original body will be worth more than a new body.
