Brand new

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.

@boardslapper I have dark brown, yeah. The tints can vary slightly so I would suggest offer up the photo here to the guitar to get a good match.
