These finishing products are causing quite a stir among discerning luthiers and woodworking craftsmen. Based upon the original recipes of the old Italian violin-makers, the 1700 System utilizes grounds to prepare the wood, then a special varnish used in tandem with its organic pigment glaze to give the wood a rich, beautiful finish.

The Old Wood 1700 System is a simple & easy-to-apply process specifically developed for wooden instruments, and enables you to generate a wide spectrum of finishes adaptable to any technique using oil-based coatings.

The 1700 System helps to achieve a balance between the beauty of the instrument and its musical quality.
