Perfect Nitro Cellulose finishes are one of the most time consuming parts of guitar building, it’s an Art. We have been using Nitro since day one.
I can’t tell you how many hours have been spent learning this process. We are lucky enough to be working in an age where lots of Luthiers are very happy to share their information and experience. Early on I remember walking round a show with Bill Collings looking at finishes, and he kept telling me, “Stick with Nitro, it’s the best”. Well I listened to Bill and all those other great makers and worked hard to nail it. Our Mirror finish is a four day process spread over three weeks. There are no short cuts, it just takes skill and patience. We are proud to produce top quality Nitro finishes and we hope you enjoy them every bit as much as we do.
