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!

Tinted Amber Lacquer helps 'age' and touch up old necks

I use the Stew Mac tinted Amber lacquer quite a bit in my shop. When the job's small, and I don't want to mix up a tinted batch of lacquer for a minor touch up, I reach for the Amber Tint Lacquer cans. With some patience and some knowledge, you can really do a great job on 'aged' Fender necks, or simply touching up an old guitar's finish that has darkened due to age. You control the amount of shading by the number of passes you make with the spray can,pretty foolproof.

Beautiful and rich

These go on easy and look great. One can is enough for one body and matching headstock, but if you want really deep/dark color use two. I use two because if I need to go back and retouch an area I got it covered.

Good Results

I like the ease of use. I used the cherry red to refinish a 335 with excellent results. To the users that had problems with splattering, you might try making sure that the lacquer is warm and be careful to clear the spray nozzles between coats.

Perfect!!

This stuff is perfect for any guitar project. I used it on my stratocaster neck(maple)and it looks awesome. It was a relic that I made and I was so pleased with the stewmac tinted nitro laquer that I will be ordering more.

Very satisfied!

This was my first time using these particular tinted lacquers. The colors were consistently fabulous and surprising controllable for spray cans. They are VERY soft. I will most definately use these again, but I will also double up on clear coats.

Great for Necks

Tobacco and Med Brown Works great as a base color coat to match Mahogany necks to Rosewood, without the hassle and the darker heel you get when using stain.

Amber Tint

Works great if you apply lightly. If you want darker use multiple coats.
