Guitar Refinishing / Finish Repair
At Legend Guitars, we are able to refinish almost any guitar and restore its’ appearance. We do all types of guitar finishes from solid colors, metallics, translucent colors, two color bursts, three color sun-bursts, tobacco bursts and sparkle finishes. We use a high quality catalyzed polyurethane lacquer for the clear coats as well as a quality sanding sealer for sealing the wood. We also use Nitro cellulose lacquer on some guitars at the customer’s request and are usually because it is a vintage finish for a vintage guitar refin. These industrial finishes are specifically designed for use on wood only and are very durable finishes. We spray as many as 15-20 coats of finish on each guitar body we build or refinish.
Our finishes are thick, deep and flawless and are machine polished to a “glass-like” high gloss luster. As well, our necks can be finished in either a high gloss or smooth satin finish in either a natural or vintage amber color tone. We take great pride in our finishes and feel it is the most important aspect of building a great looking guitar. Contact us for a price quote.
