It is one of the most popular colors among Fender collectors and widely used on Stratocaster. Inspired by the Cadillac Brougham

It is a color that changes due to its metallization depending on the shape of the guitar, from a medium metallic blue to a navy blue.

It is advisable to apply a finish to protect the color and give depth.


Our colors with vintage inspiration

The colors of Nitorlack are based on the original Fender and Gibson colors. The creation of these colors is preceded by a great work and exhaustive study by our laboratory and technical department. Thanks to this we have managed to faithfully recreate the tones of Fender and Gibson guitars from the 50’s and 60’s.

During those years until today it should be noted that the colors of vintage guitars have varied greatly over the years due to the aging of the nitrocellulose lacquer and modifications in the colors of the brands themselves.

Therefore, two guitars finished in 1960 with fender colors today may be totally different from each other or from a more current guitar.

Application guide:

  • We begin to apply the color once we have anchored the guitar with Nitorlack Primer.
  • When we start the paint job the pores should be closed and the grain should not be marked
  • Apply the product either by spray or gun at about 25 cm.
  • When applying we must follow an application pattern, first horizontal and then vertical, uniformly applying the paint.
  • Apply several coats, letting dry between them about 24 hours and sanding between them, to remove any remaining impurities.
  • This work will be completed when the surface is completely smooth and free of imperfections.


Frequently asked questions:


How many sprays do I need to varnish a guitar?

– If the surface is well covered and it is not your first painting project, you can do it with a spray, although you will not apply many coats. However if you are not an expert we recommend using 2 sprays for an optimal finish.


What temperature should the guitar be at during and after the process?

-For best results, we recommend applying it in a place whose temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees and between 45% and 60% humidity.


Where should I perform the process?

-A clean place will be essential, to prevent dirt or dust particles from adhering to the surface.


Is sanding between coats mandatory?

It is not something you should always do, but it is recommended to remove imperfections that remain in the paint at the end of each layer, as well as particles that may adhere.

    Très bonne peinture et très belle couleur, facile à passer même au spalter. Les deux seuls points négatif sont déjà la taille, pourquoi ne pas proposer moitié moins ? Cela éviterai le gaspillage surtout si ce n’est pour l’utiliser sûr qu’une ou deux gratte et cela réduirait également le prix. Ensuite, c’est le prix, pour une peinture mono-composant ça fait quand même un peu chère surtout quand on sait que le bi-composant est au même prix et que le durcisseur coute dans les 10€. Donc, s’il n’y a pas de durcisseur, pourquoi payer le même prix qu’une peinture bi-composante vendu sur le site ? Sinon la peinture est vraiment belle et n’a rien à voir avec les peintures qu’on peut trouver dans le commerce et destiné pour le bois !

    La aplicacion fantàstica, fàcil de realitzar (spray) el color és estupenda, però no como se describe en la web, pongo fotos para q compareis. Respecto a la fidelidad al original ni idea porque es un color que cambia muchisimo en l’ós ejemplos de guitarras vintage. El color exacte fue una sorpresa grata.

    El producto es bueno, ósea la pintura es de calidad. Pero no se puede vender un producto que se supone es para uso profesional sin acompañarlo de su ficha técnica, la cual solicité y era de muy poca utilidad aparte que tardaron días en responderme al correo en el cual solicitaba dicha ficha técnica.
