Nitrocellulose lacquer has been used on guitars since the fifties and sixties because of its excellent characteristics. Forming a very thin layer it allows the wood to resonate freely with little restraint. It can be spot repaired easily and when buffed, shows a beautiful shine. Finally, the way this lacquer ages (cracking, yellowing, checking) adds to the character of the instrument.

400 ml per can (Each can will provide 6-8 coats of a guitar body depending on how liberal each coat is)

**A few coats of clear gloss over the top of all colours is recommended for protection and a deeper shine.

Colours available:

• Daytona Blue
• Kingfisher Blue
• Dark Pelham Blue
• Light Pelham Blue
• Burgundy Mist
• Charcoal Frost
• Dark Cola
