This is the perfect product to give your guitar a natural looking finish.
This penetrating oil can give a matte finish or a gloss finish depending on the number of applications. It penetrates the wood well, dries quickly, is water resistant and will not change color or crack with age.
Our 150ml bottle of Penetrating Guitar Finishing Oil is enough to cover one full guitar to a gloss finish, or two guitars if applied to a matte finish. For best results apply 4 to 6 coats of finish with 2 to 4 hours of curing time in between.
Apply the initial coat to finely sanded wood, at least, 240 grit. Apply with a brush, soft cloth or rub in with 1200 grit wet and dry paper. Leave to cure for 5 to 10 minutes, or until sticky. Rub off the excess with a clean cloth and leave to cure completely before applying the next coat.
I find that the best result is achieved rubbing the oil in with 1200 grit wet and dry paper and then wiping away all the excess until you have a finish that is dry to the touch. A few coats like this followed by, if you fancy, some wax. I like heating up the cloth I apply wax with so it goes easier. You shouldn’t need to key the surface before applying more coats but if you want to just rub back a little bit with more 1200 grit wet and dry using a little of the oil as a lubricant. – Ben Crowe
