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

Specification

Translucent 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.

Translucent red nitro.

Great colour.

I have used NW guitars nitro for years but I have found that particularly Tobacco Brown and Clear Satin, have not performed as well in the last couple of years.

They produce a milky film which can only be removed by sanding out or T-Cutting, and before the question of the temperature in the room v the temperate of the nitro in the can is called into doubt, I have used nitro in the same room and under the same atmospheric conditions as I did when I started building guitars. What has changed? Has the NW guitars formulae changed?
