BEHLEN Stringed Instrument Lacquer This high quality gloss lacquer is specifically designed for wooden stringed instruments and allows for the special expansion and contraction that can occur due to the unique construction of these instruments. This lacquer must be applied in very thin coats over Behlen Vinyl Sealer in order to insure its special film building and finish characteristics. One quart.
BEHLEN Vinyl Sealer This sealer develops an excellent moisture barrier for the wood substrate, while providing a good base for all Behlen lacquer finishes. It is ready to use and needs no further reduction or a catalyst. May be applied over raw wood or filled and stained substrates. Must be applied as a base for Behlen Stringed instrument Lacquer. One quart.
Behlen Guitar Finishing Kit Behlen's designed their Guitar Finishing Kit to be a complete system in a box. Everything you need to prep, apply and complete a finish to one guitar is here. You don't even need expensive spray equipment because the kit is built around 4 aerosols: Vinyl sealer for a strong yet flexible base and Behlen's famous Stringed Instrument Lacquer for a tough yet flexible finish plus Starcast Amber and Encore Brown toners. The Toners are used to add controllable, even color to the guitar. They apply transparent color so the beauty of the wood shows through, yet they are strong enough that several coats will create the dark sunburst effect that is so popular on guitars. Starcast Amber applies the basic light tone colors of the guitar. Encore Brown is used to tone the body sides of acoustic guitars, which are typically darker than the soundboard. The Encore Brown is also used to create a sunburst effect around the edge of the body of a guitar, whether acoustic or solid bodied. Often Encore Brown is used at the edge and then Starcast Amber is sprayed over the Encore Brown, but in a wider pattern, to create a two-toned starburst. Typically, Vinyl Sealer is applied before the Guitar Toners and Stringed Instrument Lacquer is applied after the Guitar Toners to create a professional finish. With just a little practice, a first time luthier can apply a professional looking finish. Plus you get all the extras needed to create a professional looking mirror finish. The kit comes with complete written instructions and DVD plus a free Wood Finishing and Repair DVD.
Behlen Buffer's Polish #5 This is an extremely fine buffing agent for application to a cured finish to create that professional, hand rubbed, high gloss or "wet" look sheen that is desirable on musical instruments. Can be applied by hand or mechanical means and is sold in pint bottles.
Behlen Finish Rub Not quite as fine as the Buffer's Polish, Finish Rub is used to create or restore a cured finish to a satin sheen. This polish is for those who prefer a more subtle satin finish over the high gloss look. Can be applied by hand or mechanical means and is sold in pint bottles.
Behlen Fingerboard Oil Preserve the feel and appearance of your instrument's fingerboard. Perfect for use on unfinished wood because it dries hard and tack free but can also be used on older instruments to rejuvenate and protect. Periodic reapplication will keep your fingerboard from drying out and in tip-top shape. 4 oz. bottle.
The Lacquer and Finishing Rub are restricted from shipping to the South Coast Air Quality Management District in California due to the State Sales Restriction Code of S-SCAQMD
