Applying a finish to the Guitar
|I applied a tung oil finish to the guitar,
against the advice of ReRanch.
Mr. Lester doesn't like the medium because it is not a good barrier against moisture,
However, ReRanch products were not readily available, so I decided to go the tung oil route. Application was incredibly easy, and I tried to put too much on initially. Less is more with tung oil, and remember to use it sparingly.
The mahogany took on a nice red color, and the beauty of the wood really came out. Once the tung oil dried for two days, I buffed it out and applied Johnson's Paste Wax to bring out a nice shine.
Note: The coffee in the background was absolutely critical to the building process!
