Nitrocellulose Guitar Paint - 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


  • Transparent colour, which can be polished to a glossy shine (however we recommend adding a clear top coat to protect the colour)
  • 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) 
  • 400ml aerosol with eliptical nozzle

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.

Not great to be honest.

I've used this for 3 different guitars now, it's okay with a white primer on first but if you are spraying over clear to get the grain to show through like a 50's blackguard you'll need a minimum of 2 if not 3 cans to get any decent colour of butterscotch yellow.

The picture shows a full can used to spray an Alder body. 6 coats over a couple of days.
