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
Translucent colour lacquer with a glossy finish
250ml re-sealable tin
Thin 50/50 with quality anti-bloom tinners for best results
Each can is enough to finish 4-5 Telecaster sized bodies (depending on coat thickness)
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.
From the start I am not good at painting guitar finishers and although I thinned the nitrocellulose down I think it is very temperature sensitive as I could not get it to spread very well. (reason for 3 stars) I tried with both brush and sponge and got the same result. Will try again latter when I have done more research into finnishing a guitar.
Used this with the Anti Bloom thinner and got a great finish, in fact the best finish yet
Great product,great price fast delivery what more to say
I shall be using the lacquer on a 1939 cats eyes Gretsch archtop and a 1950"s Huttl archtop, both in need of extensive renovation.
Rapid sendng very good packing
