Regarding the bases, you are right, I would need to be careful. I suppose I could use Corian or an equivalent, which would be almost as durable, without the brittle nature of granite. Alternatively I could use granite, and buy some 1" x 4" hard wood make a frame and crossmembers out of it. Put a detail on the edge and use the cross member to counter sink the screw heads into. That might look good, protect the granite, and my floors.
No need to dissassemble to paint; just tape off the oak wings with that blue painters tape & gently stuff tissue into the ribbon cavities to protect them from a stray brush strand.
I also used a large permanent. marker to color in the inside of the bass port.
