Colours and finish info....



All finishing work is done exclusively in nitro cellulose paints and lacquers with appropriate primer/sealer coats. We are often asked for "colour under" base coats and "underbursts", which, when the topcoat wears through will be revealed. Any of our colours can be applied as a base coat, with popular choices being desert sand, sunbursts and Fiesta or Dakota red, with Inca silver and Shoreline gold working well under tinted and metallic top coats.....feel free to choose your favourite.

Testimonials

Dear Angela, Just thought I'd let you know that I'm really enjoying the guitar and very happy with how it plays and sounds. I used it in band rehearsal for the first time last night and it impressed everyone! My rhythm guitarist played it for an hour after he broke a string on his USA Standard Tele and reckoned it is the best guitar he has ever played! Might be another customer soon!!
