Aerosol, GUITAR TONER Lacquers • UPS Ground Only •


Toners are used to add shading effects to the guitar. Made from fade resistant dyes
in lacquer, they apply transparent color so the beauty of the wood shows through,
yet they are strong enough that several coats will create the dark sunburst effect
that is so popular on guitars.
Starcast Amber applies the basic light tone colors of the guitar. Encore Brown is used to
tone the body sides of acoustic guitars, which are typically darker than the soundboard.
The new DEEP RED M113-1203 is used on guitars, stringed, and percussion instruments;
use to tone edges or create a solid opaque Red color with a few more coats.
