What an amazing product. I normally mix my own however I wanted to try something new and this product works great and the French Polish process I used creates an amazing deep shine on my acoustic guitars. I want to thank you for your great and fast service. I have struggled to find the alcohol I needed for French polish process and I believe you are the only company in Canada that carries it so thank you. Many orders to follow.
