French Polish on Mahogany Classical Guitar

Dr. Bryan Green · Sep 8, 2022, 13:36

Hey Folks
I have an almost 50 year old classical guitar - french polished.
It is quite road worn and needs some serious TLC.

I believe the builder used Platina or blonde Shellac but not sure - it does have a spruce top.

What suggestions would you have for the mahogany back and sides; they are relatively dark?
Thanks for anyone who responds

Thanks for the pictures.

It's really hard to say. It could be a mix of blonde and orange.

You might have to test to get the color right.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
