Experienced and beginning luthiers alike can create a professional guitar finish with the Behlen Guitar Finishing kit. ... No spray equipment is required.
The kit is built around 4 different aerosols: Vinyl Sealer, Starcast Amber Toner, Encore Brown Toner, and Stringed Instrument Lacquer. Vinyl Sealer starts the finish with a strong but flexible base. The two toners allow you to create a variety of color combinations by using one or the other or a combination of the two. For example, Starcast Amber can be used to give a light golden tone to the wood. The Encore Brown can then be used to create a dark sunburst at the edge. Follow that with a heavy application of Starcast Amber over the deep brown edge and a few inches in towards the center to create a sunburst with a striking red glow flaring inward. The Stringed Instrument Lacquer topcoat is a tough yet flexible finish that resists cold checking (also available in quarts and gallons).
After the Stringed Instrument Lacquer is dried and cured, use the rubbing compounds we've included to rub the finish to a mirror-like, high gloss sheen. Finally, use the Fingerboard Oil to put the perfect finish on the fretboard. Then stand back and admire your guitar!
