“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
LMI Micro-bead Acrylic Paste Filler is an easy to use water cleanup, paste wood filler made up of microscopic glass beads in a matrix of water-soluble acrylic polymer. This filler is designed to be used with water-based finishes, but with proper cure can be used under Seagrave/Cardinal lacquers. We offer it in three base colors: natural (Maple), Mahogany (medium red/brown) and dark Walnut-Rosewood for the dark-colored woods. It may easily be further tinted using artist acrylic colors to duplicate any color needed.
Micro-bead will never shrink and is minimally absorbent of finishes and solvents. It is the safest, cleanest, and fastest filler on the market.
TO USE: Simply spread a small amount over the surface to be filled using a flexible spatula raked across the grain, pressing the material into the pores while scraping away the excess. When the pores are filled, set aside to dry (minimum time one hour, best overnight), then sand or scrape smooth. Seal wood with a wash coat of suitable sealer, then proceed with regular finishing routine.
