Daphne Blue Nitrocellulose Guitar Paint / Lacquer 400ml

Shipping Info

400ml 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


Solid colour lacquer with a glossy finish
400ml aerosol with eliptical nozzle
Reliable and easy to use - Aerosol produces a consistent fine spray
Each can is enough for 6-8 coats of a Telecaster sized body (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.

    Daphne Blue Spray Can

    Posted by Stu on 5th Dec 2020

    Bought to respray an Epiphone SG Junior. I was a bit reticent to do the job, having used car paint to do something similar 30 years ago. This was a joy to use. Only had two runs, both my fault. Dried quickly, easy to work and looks fantastic.

    Good stuff

    Used quite a few cans of this stuff. Colour is perfect and it goes on really nice, even in damp weather, not had any blooming. It’s the only place I get my rattle cans from now.
