Finishing and Painting Guitars

Posted by The Fretwire on

We get a lot of questions about finishing the guitars, and what materials to use. That is a big question, with lots of variables.  Clear or Opaque color?  Burst or monotone? Matte or Gloss? Vintage or Modern shine? Two brands we usually recommend are Colortone, available at StewMac, and ReRanch. Of course, that doesn't do a good job of talking through all the options.  Thats a big topic with a big answer. I recently came across a great YouTube series by a guy that really knows his stuff.  Here are a few videos. Check our Brad's YouTube Channel for more tips and tricks.
