StewMac Tinted Super Glue

About This Item

Excellent for repair work!
Colored glues are ideal for touching up gaps and repairing bindings, nuts, inlay and more.

StewMac's super glues are formulated specifically for instrument repair. All the tinted glues are #20 Medium viscosity, best for filling small imperfect joint gaps. They'll speed your work by hours. Our tinted super glues cure in 10-25 seconds.

Bonus: we include 3 free Whip Tip nozzle extenders with every bottle of super glue. Whip Tips add pin-point precision, letting you apply glue exactly where you want it!


StewMac Tinted Super Glues come in 3 different colors (sold separately) for various guitar repair situations:

White super glue matches white nuts and new plastic binding. Also makes a great base for tinting with other colors. 0.5-ounce bottle.

Black blends well with ebony repairs, convenient for working on fretboards and bridges. Fill around inlay on a black peghead, too! 1-ounce bottle.

Amber was developed with aged lacquer in mind. Tech advisor Erick Coleman uses amber glue on the ends of nuts to simulate an aged, lacquered-in appearance. 1-ounce bottle.


Small bottles minimize shelf life problems. To maximize shelf life, store super glues in a cool dry place.

Warning! Super glues bond skin and eyes instantly. Use in a well ventilated area. Keep out of the reach of children.

Sticks where it should

I started trying to use the simple repair techniques described here; getting the glue in just the right amount seems to be the trick. I'm still learning!

Could be great 

By

Bought this for filling screw holes and repairing cracks and deep scratches in black guitars. Had very high hopes, but was disappointed to find that without accelerant, it took 1-6 HOURS to dry! It is humid here in Florida, but not that humid and not in my air-conditioned house! Then when it finally did dry, if I had put any more than 1 layer, the glue was brittle and chipped right off when I started scraping/sanding. And when applied to surfaces where there was raw wood (ie screw holes in the headstock) it just soaked right in and even after 10 layers, it was just barely flush. It took me 5 days to do a simple repair because of it. However, the first time I used it, I let it each layer dry for 24 hours and it turned out great. Deep scratches were gone and an easy fix. Don't have the time to wait a whole day just for CA glue to dry though

Response from StewMac

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear this glue didn't live up to your expectations. We've found that this glue is really handy for finished touch-ups, although tinted super glues do take a little longer to dry than clear glues. For plugging holes as deep as screw holes, we recommend using dowels rather than filling the hole with glue. If you have any questions you can contact us over the phone or throught the Contact Us link on the website. 1-800-848-2273

Not for filling screw holes!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought this to replace the Black epoxy for filling screw holes. It is a good thing I tried this on one of my personal guitars first. Two weeks later, the holes are still not done. Each application of the super glue softens the previous layers. I have also tried it on small dings but it scraps off too easily. I don't do much inlay work, so I can't speak to its usefulness there. It looks like I need to buy some more black epoxy :(

takes too ling to dry and runny

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought this item for a finish repair, and it is not what I expected, the black tint is not dark enough, it is too runny, and you need an accelerator for it to dry fast.
I used my other stew mac ca glue, but I painted the area with enamel paint and put ca glue over it and it worked better than this stuff

Keep the bottle of super glue away from the accelerator. Store them in a separate place.Also keep the super glue in the refrigerator. Ive had it last a long time doing that.

Priceless ! When used with a whippy Tip, the Black Super Glue is excellent for Inlay on ebony wood. Either use powder with it or stand alone, makes a professional job. I just ordered the Amber. A must have for your shops "Guitar First Aid Kit"
