Pat Wilkins Colors & Finishes

Below are just a few of the colors and finishes we offer. Please keep in mind that colors seen on the web can not duplicate the delicate color qualities and subtle differences in these custom colors. We offer "correct" vintage colors and any other variation you can think of. At Wilkins Guitar Finishes, we offer only the finest finishes available. We use only the finest stains, dyes, colors, and clear finishes. Our colors and clears are the same products used by exotic car manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, and countless other fine American and Japanese companies. They sport the best durability, the smoothest, slickest finish, and that wet look that so many companies strive for but fail to achieve.

After over fifteen years of rigorous product testing, we are convinced we have found the finest quality products available at any price. Our automotive products cost as much as five times more than industrial wood products, but we are sure you will see the difference.

At Wilkins Guitar Finishes, you are limited only by your imagination. If the color, finish, or design is imaginable, we probably can duplicate it. Even if it isn't available, chances are that we can design it. In many cases we have designed finishes that our clients never dreamed possible. Anything from intense mural-type air brushing to color-changing paints are available, and many other exotic finishes that we just don't have the space to mention.

In addition, we offer nearly every type of vintage color and finish as well. Please inquire. Also, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
