The Vintage Amber ColorTone touch up marker was not even close to the color of my 1998 Vintage Toner Top Martin 00-21GE. In addition, the clear lacquer touch up marker's wick fell out and spilled most of the nitro on the adirondack spruce guitar top. Pretty much a waste of money after the high shipping costs.

These are a little pricey but the colors match well to many guitar finishes. Do yourself a favor and read the excellent StewMac tutorial on drop filling chips with clear finish. These markers used with Stewmac medium superglue and polishing papers can work wonders once you've mastered the technique of filling and polishing out chips. Some reviewers complained they won't fill chips. That's not what they are for but they can hide minor blems very well.
I was disappointed that the product was just a magic marker. It also looked very dull.
These things come in handy, not just for touching up scratches in old guitars, but in evening out finishing blunders. I even made a passible tortoise binding to replace a 3/4 inch missing section. I used the tobacco brown, the cherry red and the red mahogany with layers of super glue and a lot of sanding.
I received a "gifted" Guitar that had a small flaw in the Body. A dent so I used a clear touchup marker and after 3 fills, its basically gone.. you have to look through a Loupe to see it! Good stuff!
I love these markers. I ordered the tobacco and red mahogany markers to do some touch up on a fiddle (scarring around the bridge feet). This is so much more convenient than past methods. I ended up spending a whole night doing touch-up on a fleet of fiddles and banjos. I highly recommend these.
These are really excellent. Easy to use, and a life saver for minor dings and imperfections, or just to "age" a new part with a hint of amber.
So glad I got them! The amber and tobacco brown get regular use in my shop. More shades of the amber pen would be amazing!
I have had a lot of trouble matching the clear red lacour on the less expensive Samick Guitars, so I purchased a Cherry Red Touch Up Marker. This is finally the answer!! Made fixing the fractures and missing finish around a lifted bridge a simple fix. with a little care you can make a nearly perfect repair. I have already purchased the Black and the clear and have had great success with quick repairs! I will be buying the rest of the colors soon. This is a money maker!
Whether you're painting guitars or doing repairs on nitro finish, these are pretty darned handy touch-up markers. Get several colors.
