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!

A Beginner's Perspective

By

Being a complete novice at refinishing Color Tone's spray cans, along with the adjustable spray nozzles, was the perfect way for m to get my feet wet. As I'm able, I hope to progress to purchasing a spray gun and compressor, and use the Color Tone tints to create my own custom finishes.
Thanks for all the great products!!

Postscript: The photo is an old Cort brand guitar. It had a thick catalyzed polymer finish that completely hid the pretty grain beneath it.

Good stuff

I have no complaints about the paint...it's great!. One suggestion though. The directions call for the user to warm the lacquer in water which definitely helps. The problem is the paper that surrounds the can get's wet and falls apart. It literally falls off the can while you spray. May I suggest switching to some type of plasticized paper on the can that will stand up to water.

Putting together a new guitar. After deciding the finish purchased this with the aged clear. Color is exactly what I hoped for.
Could not be more pleased with the product.
Need to finish the clear and buff. Attach a pic when it’s finished

Amazing Product!

This was my first attempt at refinishing a bass neck so I was very nervous. However, the Color Tone Lacquer was easy to use even for a beginner and the Vintage Amber provided the exact color I was seeking. The attached photos were taken after applying two light coats of the Vintage Amber Color Tone. A clear lacquer finish will be applied at a later date.
