Great gloss top coat.


Verified Buyer

First off, I had no previous experience making a guitar body or finishing a guitar. I brushed on 6-7 coats, not worrying about the bubbles much, just sanding with 800 grit between coats. When the finish was built up really thick, I level sanded from 400 grit up to a 3000 grit wet sand, then hand polished with a rag a polishing compound. Took some work, but the result is a thick mirror like clear coat that looks like the body has been dipped in liquid glass.

This product is well worth the money if a thick clear coat with very high gloss it what you're looking for.

Easy to spray


Verified Buyer

Sprayed 8 coats on my tenor ukulele and found it easy to spray on. Need to spray on lite even coats and the buffing was a nice deep sheen.


Great for the shop


Verified Buyer

Lo he comprado y es un magnifico producto como todos los que comercializa la empresa


Excellent Alternative


Verified Buyer

An excellent alternative to Nitro lacquer. Low odor, sprays evenly and is compatible with many existing finishes. Cleans up easily with warm soap and water.
