Details

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.

Color Tone Stains

Great stain. Vintage Amber is a A wonderful color for vintage guitars and mandolins

Versatile Pigments

I have used multiple colors of ColorTone and I have actually used it for many purposes from guitars, furniture to leather guitar straps. I love this stuff. I've mixed it with water, lacquer thinner, and alcohol and it returns the color I expect.

Horrible Stain

Your stain is some of the worst out there. It did not actually stain the guitar, but just sat on top in a chalky coating. Even when I dissolved it in alcohol, it still did not actually stain the wood.

Good stuff

I just used the blue stain for a bass I built. Beautiful coverage. No complaints. Will definitely use again. Mixed with water, gave me the exact color I was hoping for.

I just started using ColorTone dyes recently, after my old favorite was unavailable. I love these dyes. They are extremely easy to use and the colors are rich. I used the vintage amber on this guitar

This concentrate is good for mixing your own shade of the colour you get.

Color Tone Stain Blue and Green

By Scott from Indian Wells, Ca.
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, August 19, 2010


The stain was excellent to work with. It applied evenly and with a continuous depth of color throughout the entire guitar body. I make custom electrics so it is vital that I use quality products in order to satisfy my distinguished clientele. Color Tone Liquid Stains are another way to make my axes come alive.

I used the orange and followed the directions on the bottle. Looks great and was easy to use.
