Tru Oil finish?

I'm curious to hear from others who have tried to finish a guitar using Tru Oil. It sounds simple and as someone who does not have a well stocked shop or great amounts of patience, I think it may be the best option for me. Any pics would be appreciated too.

Hi Charles. I've used TruOil on one guitar and I was happy with it. Here are two pics.

...

I'm now in the process of rebuilding this guitar after an accident, and I will use TruOil again on it. (Top only, I hope.)

There's a very good, very long treatise on TruOil on this forum from about a year ago; search for TruOil, Tru Oil, etc., on the main forum page.

If I could get a result like that I'd be very happy!

Don't forget, the camera can avoid the imperfections ...

I finished a neck with truoil, and will be doing 4-5 guitars with it over the winter. I was happy with the neck, and so is the current owner.

Hey, I finally found out what tru oil was and tracked out some, after all that looking around for it, turns out in my small 4500 population town, the small gun shop carries it. Go figure!

Anyways... I was wondering about the way to go about purchasing/using tru oil. He told me they will only have 3 oz brush on bottles, or 12? (can't remember) oz aerosol cans. How many bottles or Cans were required for your full finish bill? Or were they different sizes than shown?

pricing was like 5 bucks a bottle 8 bucks a can. Sounds like a great deal, depending how many I'd need.

One 3 oz bottle did my guitar.

I've read that the spray cans were no good, but can't remember where. someone else can chime in here...

I have had difficulty with them in the past with not drying, but my suspicion is that is from not shaking the can before spraying, and probably spraying 90% solvent. Softened all the coats.

I am "Rushing" the auction guitar...making it presentable for the auction, though it won't be playable. I am using the spray on truoil, and only had a problem with one coat I know I didn't shake before spraying. I built up 8 coats of sanding sealer, sanded back flush, and have been spraying truoil and wiping smooth since then. Got 8 good coats on it, and it looks good, will hardly need any smoothing.

How many cans did that guitar take to do 8 coats on?

And what oz are the cans your using? I'm just trying to see if they are the same thing or not. I've considered the cans over the brush on because I can make a piece of wood to bolt on the neck block so I can spray everything at once instead of doing each side and top/back surface at a time. Would be most efficient.

Awesome, I'll get 2 ordered at the shop here in town, and see how that goes.

How long did you have to let it cure for after you finished before you put the neck on? 2 weekish?

I've working on finishing up porefilling/sealing and I'll be able to get on the finish. Hopefully I can wrap up this build in the next 3 weeks.

Some folks are having great success with Tru-Oil...here is LINK showing some of the results.

Most of this is shot with a gun and diluted 2 to 1 with mineral spirits, using about 6 oz of the mix per guitar.

The first post explains it all..lots of pics on Tom P's links

Hope this helps some..:)

Well....I'm being very unconventional about it. I have to display the guitar tomorrow for the auction, and I put a last coat on the body last night. I'll get the neck on, get teh bridge on, will get the fret ends rounded but not leveled, and will have to display it as a work in progress. Will need 2-3 weeks to cure, will need to final-set the neck, and will do a few other things as well. Not normal, and will probably need to redo a lot of stuff. I just ran out of time...but its a beautiful guitar....will take some photos.
