Sometimes you love your acoustic guitar, but you don’t love the way it looks. Maybe the color doesn’t suit you, or it has simply seen better days. The good news is that you can refresh your instrument’s appearance easily with a guitar stain in Wisconsin.
All wood products can be stained or re-stained, and that includes wooden acoustic guitars. However, to achieve great-looking results, you must follow the correct process and use a reliable stain product. The easiest approach is to order a guitar dye kit that includes everything you need, but here are the basics of what you should know.
Remove Any Existing Finish: Be sure to remove any finish, coating, or wax that your guitar currently has. You’ll need to sand the surface until you have a smooth, clean canvas for your new stain.
Work Carefully: Guitars are surprisingly delicate instruments. While you’re working, be careful not to damage the soundboard, as this could alter your guitar’s sound. Furthermore, you may have to remove the bridge to achieve the look you want; be very cautious while attempting this.
Use a Good Sealer: After all your hard work, you want to ensure your new guitar stain lasts. We recommend using a high-quality UV-protecting wood sealer after the stain dries.
