What: A mix of natural oils with a.o. linseed oil. Solvent free.
Result: Satin gloss to gloss with a light straw color. Absorbed in the wood, but can also be build up in layers to form a tough, hard and dense protective coat.
Preparation: Sand the surface u/i grit 600. Remove dust and grease. Grainfilling for a satin gloss is optional, for a higher gloss recommended. Can be filled with grainfiller or by sanding in the oil with waterproof sandpaper which creates a smudge of sand dust and oil that will cure hard in the pores.
Application: With a brush, sponge or cloth, or for grainfilling with 600 grit waterproof sandpaper or Kovax Assilex. Switch every 1 – 2 layers to a finer grit. Let the oil set for max up to 20 minutes till still wet and rub well with a lint-free cloth. Apply the next layer after 2 – 4 hours. A minimum of 4 layers is required for a good protection, 6 -8 layers will bring a higher gloss. The last layers are rubbed, or sanded, in the direction of the grain.
Finish and maintain: Curing time usually 24-48 hours. Completely cured after 1-2 weeks. Optionally for extra gloss, a final layer of Lemon oil can be applied. After time, a new layer of Guitar Finishing Oil can be applied. Clean your guitar with a damp (not wet) cloth or Lemon oil and apply 1 or 2 new layers of Guitar Finishing Oil.
Let used cloths dry flat outside due to the risk of self-combustion!
