250ml Nitrocellulose paint/lacquer

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

Specification

Solid colour lacquer with a glossy finish
400ml aerosol with elliptical nozzle
Each can is enough for 4 or 5 coats of a Telecaster sized body (depending on coat thickness)
Aerosol produces a consistent fine spray

Fender Candy Apple Red - How it's done

Fender introduced Candy Apple Red as a custom colour for their Stratocaster and Telecaster range of guitars in 1963. The color quickly became one of Fender's most popular colors after Sunburst and Black. This unique colour is achieved by first spraying a base coat of metallic silver (Inca Silver), followed by a few coats of translucent red. The result is truly one of the most stunning finishes found on any electric guitar.

These paints and lacquers are very easy to apply and generally require no sanding in-between coats.

Tip: We recommend adding 4-5 coats of clear gloss over the top of all colours for protection and a deeper glossy shine.

Use only in a well ventilated area. Suitable breathing apparatus should be worn 

*Colour may vary slightly depending on number of coats applied, wood type and preparation method.
