ColorTone Liquid Stains, Set of all 10 colors

Spectacular sunbursts, vintage tints and head-turning modern colors: ColorTone concentrated stains mix with virtually any finish, and are formulated specifically for luthiers.

They're accurate and authentic stringed instrument colors, as researched and specified by our own guitar finishing experts—not the generic furniture colors you'll find at other suppliers.

These concentrated grain-enhancing stains are economical; a little goes a long way. Reduce them with alcohol or water to give bare wood beautiful fade-resistant color, without hiding the grain. They're versatile, too. For applying transparent color-tinted coats, ColorTone stains can be mixed directly into virtually any finish: nitrocellulose lacquer, shellac, waterbase finishes, and catalyzed varnishes or lacquers.

Available in 2-ounce bottles, in the most popular stringed instrument colors. SAVE when you order the set of all ten!

Make wood grain come alive!
ColorTone liquid stains are lightfast metal-complex dyes that can be mixed for practically any desired intensity. Unlike off-the-shelf hardware store stains, they're formulated for guitar finishing. One 2-ounce bottle makes two quarts of stain at normal concentration. Because they're liquids, they can be measured precisely for critical color matching—a plus for refinishing and touchup work. (See our handy stain mixing cups and pipettes.)

Nice little bottles

It is so nice that these bottles are so small.They make them very easy to squeeze the product out and along with the mixing cups from Stewart mac you get the most uniform mix.A little goes a long way.I will be staining my explorer and am hopeful the woodgrain shows through and gives my beautiful new unpainted instrument a nice warm look.

I bought the Cherry red, Lemon yellow, and Blue stains, and they look great when properly applied to some nice quilted/flame maple under a nice deep coat of clear. Expensive, though.
