Instructions
Formulated specifically for musical instruments. Tinted and sunbursted nitrocellulose lacquer finishes never go out of style. Now you can finish your instruments in beautiful traditional colors that enhance the wood grain, without complicated spray equipment.
13-ounce spray cans.

ColorTone® Tinted Aerosol Guitar Lacquer can be sprayed over smooth unfinished wood; over sanded basecoats of grain filler; over ColorTone nitrocellulose Sanding Sealer, and over ColorTone Stains. Spray additional coats of ColorTone Clear Aerosol Guitar Lacquer for a hard, durable finish with a deep gloss.

Aerosol spraying is an economical way for the beginner to apply a finish. Aerosols produce a slightly rougher surface than spray guns however, and more sanding of the clear topcoats may be needed for a level finished surface. Tinted coats should not be sanded.

Application Tips: We recommend spraying multiple thin coats, in a low humidity environment. Heavy-bodied Sanding Sealer (one coat equals two coats of lacquer) will seal stained or unstained wood before the color coats or clear topcoats are applied. At least one can of Sanding Sealer and 4-6 cans of lacquer will usually finish a complete guitar.

Use warm lacquer, not cold!
Pro shops spray heated lacquer because cold lacquer spatters, requiring extra sanding. You should warm up your aerosol lacquer too, simply soak them in a sink of warm tap water.


Our ColorTone Aerosol Finishing Kit is a great choice for the first-time instrument maker. It includes our easy-to-apply clear gloss aerosol finish with the best instruction book available!

Tequila Sunrise

Following the directions, using the "Vintage Amber & Cherry" I was able to do a professional "Tequila Sunrise" finish over a Flamed maple top that deserves a Stew Mac Gloss finish!

Just what I was looking for!

Since I couldn't get anything like this locally, having this option saved the day. The ColorTone tint gave me the results I needed to complete the job.

Nice product!

This was my first attempt at using a tinted aerosol lacquer to finish an instrument. (I am long familiar with clear lacquer.) After royally screwing up a first attempt due to overly aggressive buffing/polishing, my second attempt worked quite well and resulted in a very nice amber finish on a pochette fiddle. If you have never used a product like this before, PRACTICE fist! I found a half-dozen coats of tinted lacquer, followed by a half-dozen coats of clear, worked best for me.

Good Product

This was my first time using Vintage Amber tinted Color Tone nitro. I had previously used the sanding sealer and satin & gloss clear with GREAT results. First off I was surprised at the amount of tint in the amber...waaaay too much! It made it difficult/impossible to get an EVEN looking light aged look. I was also shocked at the color of the tint, which was a whole lot glowing neon yellow and very little subtle aged amber. I think this is one time they could back off the amount of tint in the mix and allow painters to get a superior result. Beware.
