Welcome to another feature at Northwest Guitars, where passion meets craftsmanship.

In this post, we are excited to shine a spotlight on our enduring partnership with Pherotone, a boutique guitar workshop led by the talented Mark Evans. Over the years, Pherotone has consistently turned to our high-quality nitrocellulose products to create some stunning guitar finishes.
