Nitrocellulose Chip Repair/Touch-up Paint
We stock a wide range of high quality nitrocellulose lacquers and paints suitable for use on any guitar project. We’ve produced a range of colours found on popular guitar models and used our own Strat and Tele bodies for reference This is the same type of lacquer as used on vintage Fender and Gibson guitars which, over time, will produce an aged, tarnished look to your instrument. These are true lacquers, as used by top guitar makers since the 1950s. They dry very quickly and produce a hard glassy finish, unlike other “pre-cat” lacquers These paints and lacquers are very easy to apply and generally require no sanding in-between coats.
50ml of neat nitro with brush located in lid
Each pot contains 50ml of neat nitrocellulose which can be applied directly to the wood surface.
This lacquer can be thinned with cellulose thinners if required though this is not necessary for scratch & chip repairs
*Colour may vary slightly dedending on number of coats applied, wood type and preperation method. Use only in a well ventilated area. Suitable breathing apparatus should be worn
Perfect color match. No transparancy. So no wood pattern visable. Apply a very thin layer of cellulose and finish with several layers transparent boat paint for a robust finish. Perfect result.
It’s a good middle of the road pigmentation that sits between Fender’52 tv yellow and the Gibson Junior variant.
A good viscosity for building up in chip/ding repairs . . . But not to be used with the cap brush as it loads too much, a simple kids fine brush aids light application so that the product sinks rather than blobbing.
I’d recommend it for small retouching up to the size of a fingernail !
The paint was a perfect match and the service was excellent
