Product Description

This kit, in easy-to-use aerosol form, will take you from bare wood to a stunning sunburst effect finish with high gloss top coat. 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 or 3 x Colour Lacqers for creating the sunburst effect - select your choice of sunburst from the dropdown list.

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)

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.

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.

The usual colour caveats and disclaimers apply: The appearance of see through lacquers can vary depending on the wood and finishes underneath. Always test for suitability on an inconspicuos area or scrap piece first. Images displayed are previews for general guidance only, the difference in displays and your particular application mean that your finish will likely look a bit different to the one shown. Nitrocellulose is a vintage finish and will crack and discolour with time. How quickly this happens, particularly the cracking, is largely determined by how you apply it.
