Poly/Urethane finish repair

Recommended Posts

My acoustic guitar fell the ground ground and the result is a big finish chip. I managed to fix the colour but I now need to apply some clear coat on it.

The finish is some sort of industrial poly/urethane finish that has a yellowish tint to it.

Any ideas as to what could work well for a repair? I'm thinking that a gel clear coat might work.

That might indeed. Are you planning on recoating the whole surface or leaning toward a spot repair? Nitro makes a good spot repair on most clears and you may even be able to tint it to match. You just have to have the patience to let it shink back and refill till it's a little proud of the surface then level and buff.

Superglue might also work. I have used it on a few similar repairs
