Replacement lacquer sticks for burn-in repairs.
A demonstration of the proper technique for repairing a nitrocellulose lacquer finish using the Behlen Lacquer Repair Kit.
I'm giving this product less than 5 stars not because of any shortcoming of the product itself, but simply because the sales pitch makes it sound simple and easy to use. It is not. The color and quality seems very good, but unless you have extensive experience and artisan-ship with this product, I recommend leaving it to the Pros. In my naivety, I tried to use the white lacquer after watching the demo video several times, merely to fix 2 small blemishes on my guitar. Now I have 2 LARGE blemishes, and I'll have to pay a professional when I can afford it, to repair my "repairs"
Very nice quality,Thanks.
try it. :)
I purchased black for filling fret ends, which makes the fretboard look like it has been bound with ebony, and clear for use in other hair-line gaps. They have produced good results for me. I could not find a UK supplier which stocked this product as individual sticks.
I use these all the time to fix chips on the head stock or gaps under fret ends. With practice you can get really good results. Practice on scrap and use the Burn in Balm to prevent overflow, file, sand up 12k, buff and your done. Melts to a honey like constancy with a good color match.
Another great StewMac product - I know they're just lacquer sticks and you can get them everywhere, but they make life a lot easier.
Good quality lacquer sticks. They melt easily and flow well.
