This High Build Guitar Finishing Oil is the perfect product to give your guitar a natural-looking finish.

Delivering a matte or a gloss finish depending on the number of applications,  it builds up to a fine finish with a minimum of fuss, is water-resistant, and will not change colour or crack with age.

Our 150ml bottle of High Build Guitar Finishing Oil is more than enough to cover one full guitar to a gloss finish, or more if applied sparingly to achieve a matte finish. For best results apply 3 to 4 coats of finish with 2 to 4 hours of curing time in between.

Directions for Use:

Apply the initial coat to finely sanded wood, at least, 240 grit, or after a sealer coat of our Penetrating Finishing Oil.  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
