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 colour lacquer with a glossy 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.

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.

Purple spray

First time i have used this product and it worked well, i will use it again .

Stunning Purple!

I made six kit guitars last year that I finished with stain and wipe on poly. Four with Northwest Amber stain. For this Harley Benton lefty Strat style kit I wanted a rich purple colour so I thought I would try a spray nitro finish. It was a different experience as I was in my garage suitably protected with the doors open. It was cold, not ideal conditions but I’m very happy with my outcome. I made a few mistakes so It wouldn’t stand up close scrutiny but far from a failure. The excess paint on the headstock ran to form quite an interesting design!
I think I gave six coats which has given a deep vibrant purple which was exactly what I wanted. I finished with clear lacquer.
Another great Northwest finishing product.
