Product Description

This kit, in easy-to-use aerosol form, will take you from bare wood to a high gloss nitrocellulose finish. The included lacquer, abrasives and polish are enough for a professional finish on one guitar or bass body.

What's in the kit?

3 x 320 grit Sandpaper Sheets (for finish sanding the bare wood body before sealing)

2 x Aerosol Spray Cans Clear Cellulose Sanding Sealer

2 x Aerosol Spray Cans Clear Nitrocellulose Lacquer Gloss Topcoat

3 x 600 grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper Sheets (for denibbing between coats of sealer and top coat)

1 x Set of 600 - 2000 grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper Sheets (for polishing once the lacquer has dried)

3 x Microfibre Polishing Cloths (for applying liquid polishing compound)

1 x Set of RF3, RF5 and RF7 Liquid Polishing Compounds (for bringing the finish to a high gloss shine)

2 x Pairs Nitrile Gloves (to wear while spraying)

1 x free finishing guide taking you through each step

Do I need anything else?

Some woods, such as Swamp Ash and Mahogany, are very porous so will need grain filling beforehand. Use our Thixotropic or Water Based grain fillers for this.

For safety you should wear a filtered facemask while spraying. The filters must be A2 grade, suitable for organic vapours. We recommend wearing the included gloves. Also, wear an apron and ensure your arms are covered to minimise the risk of getting wet lacquer on your skin. Goggles should be worn at all times.

What if I want a coloured finish?

This kit will give you a beautiful natural clear finish. If you would prefer a solid, metallic or see-through colour finish you can simply buy your desired colour of cellulose paint or nitrocellulose lacquer, and spray this on your guitar after the sealer and before the top coat. Compatible finishes are:

Tinted Nitrocellulose Lacquer (for see-through finishes where the wood has colour but the grain is still visible)

Sunburst Nitrocellulose Lacquer Kit (these kits contain the colour paint and/or lacquer you need for creating gorgeous sunburst finishes)

Solid Colour Cellulose Paint (the grain will not be visible, this is a solid colour finish e.g. Fiesta Red, Surf Green)

Metallic Colour Cellulose Paint (the grain will not be visible, this is a metallic colour finish e.g. Ocean Turquoise, Lake Placid Blue)

Are there instructions?

We include full instructions with each kit (downloadable here), which detail the steps required to complete the finish. We also have extensive additional information and guides in our Knowledge Base here: Wood Finishing KB

I want to use a spray gun, can I use this kit?

This kit comprises only of aerosol spray cans. If you have a spray gun or HVLP kit and would like to use that instead, you can purchase all of the above items separately to make up the kit - all sealers, primers, paints and lacquers are available in bottles for use with spray guns.
