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
Excellent product and easy to use
Fast delivery - a great service all round.
This product works very well for repair of small chips in the guitar finish. With careful application of fine grade wet and dry papers, rubbing compound and cutting polish a high gloss finish can be achieved. I suspect that metallic finishes will always be more tricky to work with than solid colors; as an in-experienced repairer, I applied the lacquer a little too thickly, so achieved a less even color than I would have liked. That will be rectified next time. On the basis of this I have ordered other colors and would have no hesitation in buying this again.
