Instructions
They're a simple way to touch up scratches in old or new finishes, or to repair minor sand-throughs at the finishing stage. Traditional guitar tints are compatible with our ColorTone Liquid Stains and Tinted Aerosol Guitar Lacquers.

Use the handy clear nitrocellulose lacquer marker for spot repairs in transparent finishes, for spot-sealing tints, and to spot-mask bindings and purflings before staining the surrounding wood.

color match for that little speck

makes fixing that little pin spot or even the larger spots, much easier. They only come in 5 colors but you can play with these 5 and get a close match to any instruments color.

Touch up markers

This product is OK for some applications. It seems to dry up fast in the tube so shelf life is short.

ColorTone Markers

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.

Very useful

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.

Just a magic marker

I was disappointed that the product was just a magic marker. It also looked very dull.

they do the job

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.

Flaw Repaired!

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!

Very handy!

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.

GREAT PRODUCT

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.
