Again a whole lot of useless questions about where the wood is sourced and about the hot swap switch mounting system but absolutely NOTHING about the finish of this so-called, Wood Bodied Keyboard. Is it stained or oiled in any way? Is it finished with any type of "Clear Coat" to seal the wood from stains, moisture and absorption ? These are the real questions that need to be answered here, in regards to any Wood based keyboard. There is NO mention of this in this Sale section hence the MassDrop OP better provide something of note here, otherwise lots or potential returns and refunds shall ensue.

That wood sure doesn't look like "rosewood". It does look like bubinga, which is not in the Rosewood family at all. It is sometimes called "African Rosewood", since it is similarly dense and darkens when oiled. I call calling it "Rosewood" a flat out lie. I use Howard Feed -N- Wax on Bubinga and Rosewood. Even on a $3k guitar.

I guess the advantage of wood is that you can treat it yourself. It would be good to know if anything would need to be removed first, since it would be bad if it used a particularly low quality coating.

What's useless and what's useful to know seems to depend a lot on the point of view. I at least consider your posting to be primarily useless ranting. :-P

Exactly, MassDrop tends to do that a lot, never indicating what type of finish is used on any of their wood based product's here. Suspect they don't know at all hence why the continued silence and hoping that the buyers will find out for themselves. A shame really considering they are trying to sell stuff they consider is trustworthy and safe to use. Nothing worse when the keyboard body, starts to change shape and size due to external condition's and the key's end up being affected, when the keyboard is used.
