Greetings from O'Brien Guitars 

I often get emails from folks asking how it is possible to French polish a guitar in as little as a day or two! The traditional method takes weeks. Well, it is possible and as you can see in the pics below the results are stunning. Shellac is one of the most versatile, easy to work with and appealing finishes I know of. It has been around for generations. You need no special equipment like respirators, spray guns and compressors and you are not going to poison yourself or blow yourself up. It can even be done on the kitchen table - with your wife's or husband's permission of course. 
In my private classes we finish the entire guitar in as little as 6 to 8 hours! I love seeing the response of students when they realize that French polishing an instrument is not as hard as they were led to believe. In fact, it is quite easy and anyone can do it with spectacular results. 
Every year I offer a two day masterclass teaching my French polish method. This year it will be held June 18-19 and I still have a couple of spots left in the class. Contact me if interested in learning my modern approach to French polish.  
If you are unable to attend the class then my online French polish course is the next best thing to being here with me in my shop. 
Happy Finishing!
  

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,
