Seagrave Nitrocellulose Spraying Lacquer

About This Item

Legendary McFadden lacquer formula lives on, now under the Seagrave name. A long-time favorite of guitarmakers for durable traditional finishes with beautiful gloss.

Seagrave Lacquer can be sprayed with or without thinning, for fast build-up in multiple coats. It sprays well with most guns, and can be polished and buffed after as little as seven days curing time.

This professional lacquer is compatible with our ColorTone stains, pigments and grain filler.

It's formulated for spraying on wood sealed with Seagrave Vinyl Sealer, or on unfinished wood. If thinning is desired, add Seagrave Thinner.

1 quart.

One can goes a long way! One quart will finish:
1 acoustic guitar body and neck
2 complete mandolins
2-3 solid guitar or bass bodies
3-5 electric guitar or bass necks
4 ukuleles
2-3 dulcimers
2-3 banjo rims and necks

Keep in mind there are many application variables: your spray gun adjustments, PSI used, and the number and thickness of your finish coats.

Lacquer products are flammable! They cannot be shipped outside the USA, nor shipped by air within the USA. Nitrocellulose lacquer products should not be used with acrylic lacquers.

My all-time favorite nitro finish. Works great with my HVLP system. Can be used at full strength right out of the can. Sinks nicely and can go through final sanding 2 wks after the final coat even though I prefer to wait 1 month. Highly recommended.

High quality. Just like the stuff on old Gibsons, Epiphones, Guilds, etc., from the 50's. Cures very hard.

I am not a painter when it comes to this kind of stuff. It seems a little thin to me and will definitely run if you get too close with your sprayer and/or try to put too much on the first time. I struggled with it but it is surely a hard durable finish and can be polished to perfection.

Used this with the black stain mixed in to finish my tele build. It polished up great with the compound stewmac sells. Going to buy it for next build.

Great Lacquer

I am a first time builder with minimal woodworking experience. I bought most of my supplies from StewMac including this lacquer. I sprayed it with a $50 gun and a small compressor. I thinned it 75/25 (lacquer/thinner) and it went on really nice! No runs, drips or sags. I still had to wet-sand but that is expected with any spraying. I followed StewMac's instructions and ended up with a really great finish! My guitar looks better than all my factory models! Such a deep, classy finish.

I tried to get some quality lacquer locally but the best I could find was Deft. A serious mistake. Restripped the guitar and bought this product. More money yes, but it sprayed on nice and laid down well. Sprayed about 16 coats thinning about 20%. After letting sit for 8 days I wet sanded lightly with 600 then 1200 and buffed. Wha la! A nice hard deep finish.
