Two guitars sprayed together in 1960 look very different today, depending on where they’ve been all these years. And neither one looks like the day it left the factory.To get an authentic look for our finishes, Erick Coleman color-matched original guitars. Sonic Blue is based on a 1960s Stratocaster. This finish is opaque, like the auto paint Fender used in the ’50s.’I see a lot of vintage guitars in my shop. Most aerosols don’t really come close to looking like the colors they are intended to. These new ColorTone finishes nail the look of vintage beauties I’ve had on my bench.’âErick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisorColorToneÂ® Classic Colors Aerosols can be sprayed over smooth unfinished wood; over sanded grain filler; over sanding sealer, and over ColorTone Stains.
