Kevin

Which country do you live in. I have a supplier in Germany that is easier than America if you are in the U.K. 

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

Here is a link to the stains I use - they mix with anything...you are probably looking for 'Vintage Amber' - good luck!

https://www.stewmac.com/luthier-tools-and-supplies/supplies/finishing-supplies/colors-and-tints-and-stains/colortone-liquid-stains/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping&utm_campaign=2022-11-gp&pref_currency=GBP&shipcalc=UK&gclid=CjwKCAiApvebBhAvEiwAe7mHSJOCO_DUKvRaRhgZh6WCLFsk8V_222CScKTH8yEC2NsH5V8c3_gEmRoCHBgQAvD_BwE

 

 

TIP:
If you want Stewmac products without the import BS here in Europe, You can also buy from Madinter in Spain, they do carry most of Stewmac products.
The Import duty is allready taken care of and no extra charges from your local customs/mail service.So no hidden surprises

Hi

I am in the UK so it would be better if I could find a local supplier but not necessarily a luthier supplier

I just realized that for the UK things are a bit different and you would need to pay duties anyway. So not a really good tip 🙂

@koendb Yep, as we live in the dumbest country in Europe, we have to pay extra costs for European products. The isolation of the UK is a reality for us, even in Scotland where we still want to be European. 
Thanks for thinking of us though, any help is appreciated. 👍

Make guitars, not war 🌍✌️🎸

It is annoying for us living outside UK too. I used to shop some tools and stuff, even the odd guitar, from UK. But not that much anymore.

@swepri I can only apologise. If it was up to me, this would not be happening. Maybe one day, and if the UK can stay together, we will wake from this lunacy.
