ColorTone Tinted Aerosol Guitar Lacquer

About This Item

Traditional finishes made simple! Ideal for touch-up work, or for finishing an entire instrument. Fast-drying and resistant to alcohol and water.

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!

I bought the amber tinted aerosol lacquer for a veneer top crack repair on a old Greco Super Real I recently bought, and I was impressed how even it sprayed on. Not only that, but this tinted lacquer looked so good, I decided after making my repair to sand off the original finish, order some more and refinish the whole top with this color. I probably had enough with one can to do the whole top, but I wanted to make sure I had plenty in case I decided to go with a few extra coats to a richer amber hue. As far as the original repair went, it matched up pretty well color-wise. However, the Color Tone amber tinted aerosol lacquer brought out more of the grain in the surrounding area of the repair, and had an 'HD' look to it compared to the original finish, maybe due to its age, but it's what inspired me to just refinish the whole top with it. If your thinking about purchasing this product, you'll be glad you did, and you won't be disappointed! I also purchased some of the Aerosol Spray Nozzles to use, and these were worked excellent, and well worth the few extra dollars to make the job that much easier. I highly recommend these as well if your going this route. They are well worth it!

Used this on a similar colored guitar, and it looks great. Keep in mind that it is a little transparent, so some of the wood grain will show through.

Les Paul repair

Verified Buyer


Had to fix a broken headstock on a 28 year old Les Paul. The maroon back of the guitar was likely a little faded over the years. This lacquer was just a tiny bit darker than the original back, but feathered in it is really not noticeable except up very close.

Just follow the directions and this stuff is great. I found a clip on trigger handle helped with finger fatigue and resultant accuracy issues (mine, not the product). Flows well, spreads nicely and dries to the touch relatively quick.

If you follow the directions, you’ll get an amazing finish. I went with the Amber to try to get that aged look and the color is so rich and vivid. I’ve grown to expect only top quality from the Mac!!! You can’t go wrong with this company.
