ColorTone Touch-up Marker

About This Item

Genuine nitrocellulose guitar lacquer, easy to use
Easily repair minor finish dings and scratches. When that heartbreaking first ding appears on your new guitar, these convenient ColorTone touchup pens come to the rescue. No brushing, no spraying!

The applicator tip on the marker is reversible. One end has a flat surface for broad strokes. Remove the tip and flip it around for pin-point application.

Use Clear Gloss for repairs in clear finishes, for spot-sealing tints, and to mask bindings before you stain the surrounding wood. Aged Clear has a subtle tint to match old finishes.

The tinted lacquers are transparent. They're great for touching up sunbursts and finishes where the wood grain shows through. They match the colors in our ColorTone Aerosol Guitar Lacquers.

Blond and TV Yellow are vintage classics. Sometimes called toners, these finishes are semi-opaque to allow some grain to show through.

The Black pen is the quick fix for scratched pegheads, and Sonic Blue is a match for the classic Fender solid color of the same name.

A word of caution:
Nitrocellulose lacquer melts into itself, making it ideal for nearly invisible touchups on lacquer finishes. But that also means there is potential to disturb or damage the existing finish. Experiment with the markers on scrap wood to get a feel for their flow and application before attempting a repair on your guitar.

Warning! Lacquer under pressure
Our new touch up pens differ from the felt tipped marker type we previously stocked. These pens contain nitrocellulose lacquer that is under pressure. It is very important to relieve the pressure built up from shaking it prior to use by pressing down on the tip with the pen in the upright position. This will prevent the pen from flooding your work with excess lacquer.

Absolute life saver!

By

I'm building a kit guitar, and using ColorTone spray lacquer for finishing. After applying the black lacquer, I decided that a slight sanding was in order to smooth a few spot out. I was horrified to find that the light sanding went right on through to the wood. I ordered the Gloss Black and Clear pens, and what a relief. Absolute control over the lacquer, went right where I needed it, and had no problems with the touch up. As another user stated, hold the pen upright and depress the tip to relieve any pressure build up before use. If the tip gets dry, briefly immerse it in some lacquer thinner to dissolve the dry lacquer, then test it on a rag the get the lacquer flowing again. And, if at all possible, touch up the surface in a horizontal position for better control of the touch up. Overall, a marvelous tool to have around when a scratch occurs, the repair is invisible! I'm still learning, and these pens make mistake recovery a snap. Thanks, StewMac!

Follow the directions and these touch-up pens do a fantastic job. I touched up a Heritage H-150 sunburst finish that had a scratch down to the wood and the vintage amber blended in and hid that scratch just perfectly.

Tobacco Brown a Perfect Match

By

Verified Buyer


I took a chance ordering the Tobacco Brown ColorTone for my signature Gibson ES-335, but the color match is perfect for Teaburst. I did test the color on a piece of wood before trying it on my guitar, and it looked right so I went ahead with it. The marker flows onto the surface of the guitar slowly (not quickly as some users said in the reviews.) It is true that it dissolves the finish lacquer in the process but this makes for a good bond with the paint. It takes multiple applications to get a good coverage for dents so I am not finished with my repair yet. I will polish the repair with a very mild abrasive when it is done, but it is a very small dent so I'm not worried about it. I would not recommend using this product for hairline cracks because it tends to build up too much paint, but for dents and dings - it is ideal. I have discovered for tiny hairline cracks that a furniture crayon provides excellent results without any risk of marring the finish.

I just discovered this product and I have been very happy with it. Very effective for spot touchups or filling in tiny craters in binding. Shake well, and relive pressure before touching to work piece. I will be buying more for sure. -Companion Banjos
