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. Can be polished to 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.

Peter West
Wine red nitro aerosol

Im eagerly waiting before flat sanding and buffing but the colour is fantastic. Its almost identical to my custom shop murphy lab 64 335 cheery red which is a darker more wine red. The colour went on very well with no issues and im expecting the final result to be better than i actually expeted

Alan Jordan
Not as transparent as expected

Not used this colour before, it was far less transparent than expected. It has taken a lot of work to knock back enough to let the wood grain show through. Not cured enough yet to give a final comment but it does seem more susceptible to blush than other nitro finishes.
