ColorTone Aerosol Finishing Kit

About This Item

A beautiful finish made simple.
Great choice for the first-time finisher.

Want to complete your instrument project with a professional-looking finish, but don't have the space, budget, or long-term need for a spray gun and compressor system? Our popular ColorTone® Aerosol Finishing Kit is just for you. Even if you're a beginner, you can achieve beautiful results you'll be proud to show off. You'll get professional guidance from the best instruction book available Guitar Finishing Step-by-Step.

  • A great choice for the first-time finisher
  • Easy-to-apply traditional clear gloss nitrocellulose lacquer in spray cans
  • Full set of polishing compounds for a beautiful high gloss finish
    The kit includes:
  • ColorTone clear gloss nitrocellulose aerosol lacquer (4 cans)
    (Nitrocellulose lacquer is the traditional choice for fine instruments.)
  • ColorTone clear nitrocellulose aerosol sealer (1 can)
  • ColorTone polishing compounds (4-ounce bottles)
    Coarse, Medium, Fine, and Swirl Remover
  • Fre-Cut/Micro Finishing Paper Sampler (22 sheets in a wide variety of grits)
  • Guitar Finishing Step-by-Step book
  • Helpful instructions for using micro finishing papers and special tips for aerosol finishing

This kit cannot be shipped outside the USA, nor shipped by air within the USA.

TIP: If you're finishing porous woods such as mahogany, ash, rosewood or koa, we recommend inexpensive ColorTone Waterbase Grain Fillers, available in a variety of matching colors. They'll help you get a level, pore-free wood surface fast, so you'll need fewer finish coats and less sanding.

This is what I’ve been searching for

This is the best starter kit for my project telecaster.
I am building my own guitar, this is the first which will probably lead to building a few more for fun.
I wasn’t sure what I would need to get that glossy finish and a smooth feel. Thankfully, this kit has everything I need in order to finish my project. Now I just need it to stop raining.
The book is full of very useful information. Some great tips and tricks. Full illustration of some of the most popular finish and tones.
How to get that beautiful Martin finish. And tons more.
I would highly recommend this kit for you shop or spare bedroom, converted to a shop for now.

Conflicting Directions; Quantity of Sealer

By

Verified Buyer


I am a nuu beee to preparing the wood for finishing the guitar body and was confused regarding the length of time necessary between coats of sanding sealer. The directions in the book and on the sanding sealer aerosol can called for 1-2 hours between coats; all the while a separate document that came with the finishing kit called for at least 4 hours.
In addition, I received, in the kit, one can of sanding sealer and could have actually used one more. Not a big complaint...just saying.

Great product

I had built a Strat at NGI, PA and wanted to do some embellishments. I bought some Turqoise stone-chips to fill the engravings and then got down to using the StewMac’s Lacquer kit. I must have finished two cans in a span of three to four days as was given in the instructions. The results are exceptional. I am really happy with the instructions and the quality of the products.

Great value

This is the best way to get into spray finishing. The book, sandpaper and polishes would be worth it but you get the lacquer and sealer as well. Take your time and this kit will get you started right.

A very encouraging assortment.

By

Verified Buyer


I still have an estimated five hours before the guitar kit I bought this for arrives, but I've been reading the book that came with this finishing kit, and the instructions on the colorful wood dyes I also picked up, and together they add up to confidence. The book is the best part. How much of the other supplies you need depends on what sort of finish you're looking to create, but it's just a matter of comparing your needs and supplies to the various styles in the book and finding a workable match. Being able to proceed with confidence in an unfamiliar field is very encouraging.

The color tone Aerosol Finishing Kit was great! This was my first attempt, and if you follow the directions in the book and info with the sandpaper, you can get a nice finish. I also used the stain and tinted lacquer. Materials are great, and the guys here at stewmac are very responsive and helpful with any tech questions. Thanks so much!
