ColorTone® Black Aerosol Guitar Lacquer is formulated especially for musical instruments. Fast-drying and resistant to alcohol and water, it produces a hard, durable opaque black gloss finish that can be clearcoated with ColorTone Clear Aerosol Guitar Lacquer for a deep, sleek gloss. Convenient 13-ounce spray can.

ColorTone® Black Aerosol Guitar Lacquer can be sprayed over smooth unfinished wood; over sanded basecoats of grain filler, and over ColorTone nitrocellulose Sanding Sealer. It's ideal for touch-up work, or for an entire instrument. The rotating-tip nozzle can spray a horizontal or vertical pattern.

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.

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 the wood before the black coats are applied. Spray only enough black to hide the wood; most of the final finish thickness should be sprayed with clear gloss topcoats.

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!

I was a little apprehensive about my abilty to refinish my guitar but with the help of this forum and tips throughout the site I would have to say my project was a success. If I can do it anybody can. Look at pics below of how beautiful my les paul came out.

Great aerosol paint for beginners!

As a beginner I like assembling and finishing kit guitars. At some point I will try my hands at building a guitar from scratch but for now Stewmac's aerosol paints are the best. I used this color for the headstock on a 335 double cutaway kit guitar. Looks great and convienent to use. Highly recommended. Be sure to read all the directions and wear a filter mask.

Awesome!

its the best spray paint i ever used for guitar, i painted the back of my guitar neck and its looks like a pro airbrush job, i was a little discouraged to purchase because a few bad reviews from here,i have a feeling they might not know how to spray paint lol,its very easy,just follow the instructions, if you never spray painted before i advise you to practice first with a regular spray can, learn how to spray paint, Get this product! you wont be disappointed!

Amazing product

This is an amazing product to make small repairs or custom builds quick! I used only one can on an Esquire build and it came out great!!! Thank you all at StewMac.

Splattering Issues

I've generally been very happy with StewMac products, but this Gloss Black Nitro is splattering very badly. Even after putting the can in warm water prior to using it, using new tips, shaking for over two minutes, it's been leaving very large splatter marks. I've never had this issue with other brands of cans, but I thought I'd try these to save $5, and Stew Mac ships quicker. I won't buy StewMac finishing cans again.

Very easy to use when I don't have a great deal of time to set up my spray equipment.

Great for limited equipment

Since I don't have spray equipment or space to set up a shop I have finished several banjos using just canned lacquer. I use black for pegheads, Vintage Amber, Red Mahogany, and Tobacco Brown for a sunburst, and clear to finish. It's a great product for the small time builder.
