It isn’t by accident that iconic, big clean sounds are from guitars which tend not to have very much paint left on them! The distinctive tone of Stevie Ray’s One or Rory Gallagher’s stratocaster are just a couple of classic examples. Solvent based polyurethane and NITRO Cellulose lacquers create a dampening filter to the natural resonance, feel and tone of a guitar. These have been the accepted ways to finish guitars since the 1950′s and nothing much has changed, largely because they produce thick, consistent looking results, quickly. At Wudtone we have developed our own method of finishing to maximise the integrity, resonance, feel and tone of a guitar.

If you are interested in the same benefits for your guitar project we can supply a finish kit which includes:
  • Deep colour and Base coat (colour options available in our online store ).
  • Base coat
  • Top coat (satin, extra gloss options available in our online store).
  • Protective gloves.
  • Detailed instructions.

Overview on the kits and how to use them:
An advantage of using a Wudtone finishing kit is that no specialist skills or spraying equipment is required. There is no spraying involved, which in itself can be hazardous when using aerosol cans with no special breathing equipment . Spraying creates the opportunity, depending on skill to lather on wet coats, spray eddys, high density around edges creating areas of considerable thickness without realising. A 400ml can of spray lacquer can be quickly used up on a body.

The Wudtone finish kits, along with method of application won’t add more finish than is needed. Slow curing, self levelling properties ensure you achieve a professional result with excellent wear and tear capability, yet reduces filtering to maximise the resonance, feel and tone of the guitar.

Using the Wudtone finish kits will :
  • enhance the beauty, integrity and natural ageing process of wood.
  • create a breatheable, hardwearing finish.
  • offer none of the suffocating tone disadvantages of solvent based poly and nitro cellulose lacquers.
  • be easy to repair ( unlike cracked lacquers) in the event of any damage to the surface.
The finish kits come with base coats and top coat, designed to meet the demands of wood. Being microporous they won’t crack or blister. The finish provides complete protection against beer, wine, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juice, milk. water and sweat! It is extremely durable and hardwearing.

The base coats include pigments and or dyes ( depending on colour option) . These are emulsified into natural oils, waxes and curing agents. No grain fillers, sanding sealers are required as oils, pigment, dye elements soak into the wood during the application of the first couple of coats. The wood itself will let you know how much is required. Lighter woods, eg light swamp ash, need a little more than dense woods. You will quickly notice less and less base coat required with each coat and you are able to vary the density of the tint with the number of base coats, usually between two to five. The top coat includes more waxes, curing agents. It is also slow curing, self levelling and between 2-5 coats are usually applied.
