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
Solid 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.
This is the third time I've used Northwest's paint in Fender colours and I have to say that having bought nitrocellulose paint for guitars from various sources over the last twenty years that this is one of the best. It's also great to be able to buy in relatively small quantities as it saves on storage space and waste.
