Details

Easily repair minor finish dings and scratches. When that heartbreaking first ding appears on your new guitar, these convenient ColorTone® markers come to the rescue.

They're a simple way to touch up scratches in old or new finishes, or to repair minor sand-throughs at the finishing stage. Traditional guitar tints are compatible with our ColorTone Liquid Stains and Tinted Aerosol Guitar Lacquers.

Use the handy clear nitrocellulose lacquer marker for spot repairs in transparent finishes, for spot-sealing tints, and to spot-mask bindings and purflings before staining the surrounding wood.

Great for small dings

By Gabriel's Guitar Repair from Dallas, TX
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, November 16, 2011


I have used these pens to fill some small dents and dings on guitars. Great for when you do not need to cover a large area. In the future maybe Stewmac can put the same lacquer in nail polish type applicators.

This product does not work - save your money

I am a long-term, loyal Stew Mac customer and must say that this is the first time that I am competely dissatisfied with a product purchase. Simply put, these stain pens do not work as advertised and made no difference whatosver in filling minor chips on my vintage Gibson acoustic.



Simply put, the product is a waste of money.

Pretty useful

I closed the case on my strat with the tremolo arm in he wrong position and dented the surf green finish.

I filled the dent with clear lacquer and sanded it down using the micro mesh finishing pads. Dent is now just *barely* visible.

Hints - don't use the applicator tip -- put some on a paper plate and apply with a tiny brush, Q-tip, toothpick, etc.

When sanding (with the micro mesh finishing pads) don't press down -- let the grit of the pad do the work or you'll scratch the finish and it will be harder to polish out your scratches than it is to polish the drop of lacquer.

Stewmac...your ColorTone Touchup Markers have saved the day more than a time or two. I find that the color match on the Touchup Markers is spot-on and these items have found a permanent place in my shop. Tony at The Luthiers Workshop - Green Bay, WI.

Very nice product - Definitely better than store bought wood stain markers

Ok in a pinch

By Q-Ball from PA
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, February 05, 2011


These work fine for pedestrian results on less expen$ive guitars. Otherwise they're difficult to get the "just right" amount of paint to fill a touch-up. Either it comes flooding out or you're cursing the too dry tip. Also this paint does not sand like true lacquer (easily), so be careful if your doing a larger spot or building up a repair.

It's alright. It does what it says. but im not satisfied. The marker doesn't really 'put' the clear lacquer on the guitar like i thought it would. Overall, save your money and buy some q-tips, dip them in the lacquer and you'll get the same, if not better, results than the marker would. Also its not really worth 11 dollars. I'd say about 5 or 6 dollars tops.

Black Marker

It works really good to cover little bare wood spots, but donÆt breath it, itÆs heavy duty stuff.

Overpriced but Effective

By Ghost Dog from Huntsville, AL
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, December 16, 2010


Can't say it any truer. I used this to touch up a neck repair on my LP Studio. The guitar has a flat black low gloss (Satin Matte I think) paint. It is basically perfect for this touch up marker, almost indistinguishable.



On the con side, this marker is expensive. And it only works on black. And a high gloss finish would show the touch up a lot more than a flatter finish.



Not an exceptional product, but perfect for what I was using it for. It's useless to touch up any of my other guitars though, and it's a little too expensive for what it does.
