Excellent product. Used this for several years and I can find nothing that matches it. Highly recommended.

I’ve used several other brands and this stuff is the best by far. Really smooth application, no splitter from the cans and dries really quickly.

As everyone else has said, brilliant stuff, second time using it now, was a complete novice the first time and my guitar turned out great, lays on really good and minimal wet sanding got me to a mirror shine

hi there will this go over another make of paint,thank you
– 14 June 2020
Well it rather depends what the other paint is.
It should be okay over other brands of nitrocellulose lacquer but it’s always advisable to test a small area first.

Hi Steve can this be used on a matt nitro finish to bring it to a gloss? Any tips if so? Thanks, Ia.

Yes it can. Just make sure the surface is free of any grease before you spray.

Hi, can this be used on top a alkyd based paint? If so how many cans are needed for a guitar body? I read your article on the candy apple red paint job and it said 1 can. So will 1 can be enough for a clear coat on a block colour body? Many thanks, Tai-Li

I don’t think so, you would have to test first.
One can may be sufficient if the underlying surface is perfect but it doesn’t give much protection against the risk of rubbing through when buffing. The CAR body already has a lot of lacquer on from the original sunburst plus the primer, silver and red layers.

Hey Steve, I have heard good recommendations about your products. Can I use the clear coat to spray onto a guitar body that has been painted with an alcoholic solution of the Keda wood dye (trans finish)? I have already painted the whole guitar, after sanding it with 180 grit paper (though I guess it would be best to sand it with 400 or 600 grit paper, no?)

180 grit is quite coarse I think. I’d normally sand to 320 before applying lacquer. If you were to sand you’d almost certainly have to repair the stain by re-application.
The lacquer will go over the dye with no problems but the first coat may raise the grain so you’d have to sand lightly to denib before applying more coats.

Used other brands of nitrocellulose lacquer in the past, but thought I’d try yours after reading your tips on a guitar forum.
I used your light yellow tinted lacquer aerosol to refinish my Gibson 335. Amazing colour and easy to use.
Will definitely be using your clear lacquer to finish the job, and on any future projects.
