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


Transparent lacquer with a matt 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.

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.

Spottier finish than similar nitro satin spray can lacquers

I thought I'd try these out as their a little friendlier on the pocket than my usual (I use these for sealing the inside of acoustic instruments).

However I'm having a harder time than usual getting a smooth satin finish. It's quite rough and spotty, as if the lacquer is hardening before it hits the surface. You can force it by spraying way too much lacquer from a close distance, but then drips become an issue.

I'm not sure what the issue is exactly, as I wasn't getting this with other similar brands.

Maybe NWG can advise.
