I have used wax in my shop for a number of years for a variety of purposes. However, I was never really quite satisfied with the products available to me because they were either, too hard, too soft, too oily, too expensive, smelled bad or a combination of these. So I decided to make my own. Thus began my quest to develop a wax I felt comfortable using in my shop. After a lengthy research and development period I have come up with a wax that suits my needs. This wax is made from high quality ingredients by me right here in the O’Brien Guitars workshop. I use it for many things including: heel and end blocks, bridges, necks and even as an entire finish on an instrument. I also use it on my power and hand tools to keep them friction and rust free. I am now making this available to other luthiers as well. Use it to protect and beautify your own creations.
One area that I do not use wax is the fretboard. For that, I prefer to use Lemon oil. The product I use has no silicone, water, wax or build-up. Use it to clean, moisturize and protect the fretboard on your instrument.
