About 15 years ago I went through a water based finish stage. Like most folks I wanted to avoid all the hazardous chemicals involved with traditional finishes. Let's just say that I wasn't impressed with the results. Fast forward to today and the water based finishes available to us have come along way in their evolution. They are easier to apply, harder, more durable, and cure in less time. If it has been a while since you used a water based finish I suggest taking a second look. LMI offers a product called Brite Tone made by Crystalac. It can wiped, brushed or even sprayed. Recently I did some testing of this product and was very impressed with the results. See the video below. 
Also, renowned luthier, Jay Lichty, has been using water based finishes on his world class instruments for quite some time. Recently he did a water based based finish instructional video which is available via my website. 
Happy Finsihing! 
If you are interested in learning to build guitars or just want
to see how I build my guitars then schedule a class with me.
If you are in need of a concert quality classical or steel string
guitar then let me know as I would love to build a guitar for you.

Thank you,
