Nitrocellulose Guitar Paint/Lacquer - 400ml

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


400ml aerosol with eliptical nozzle
Solid colour, which can be polished to a glossy shine
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.

335 guitar project.

Spraying with the can’s went well with no clogging or spitting this is my first go at restoration and I’m pleased with the coverage and looks great.

Arctic white on basswood body

Color tone as expected, excellent coverage, did find i had to spray a little closer to body than usual to avoid powdery finish. Though that may be due to humid spraying conditions. Used on top of sealer plus primer. Excellent nozzle and quick drying. Left me with a better than expected finish
