Wide neck bass stand?

I'm starting to realize that finding a stand for my BT6 might not be as simple as I thought.

I was looking at the Hercules GS415B but it doesn't seem to be wide enough. My BT6 is about 54mm at...

OK. Well I got my TCRML's and I'm gonna give them a try. I'm curious as to whether it's advisable to take all the old strings off first, then put all the new ones on, or change them one at a time.

Understood. There are no issues with the bass at all. It's well-loved.

Do you have a recommendation for wiping it down after playing? Just a clean microfiber cloth? Maybe something else?

The finish on the neck appears to be worn away around the 3rd fret area. What would be involved in getting that refinished, or barring that, protecting it as much as possible from further wear?
