Vintage inspired guitar colors
Daphne Blue. Based on original Fender and Gibson colors.
To develop our guitar colors we have relied on original samples from the 50s and 60s. After great work and exhaustive study by our laboratory and technical department, some have been achieved guitar colors that faithfully recreate the tones of vintage Fender and Gibson guitars for painting electric guitar.
During those years to the present, it should be borne in mind that the colors of vintage guitars have varied greatly over the years due to the aging of nitrocellulose lacquer and changes in the colors of the marks. Therefore two guitars finished in 1960 with fender colors today can be totally different from each other or from a more current guitar.
- We begin to apply the color once the guitar has been primed with Nitorlack Primer.
- When we start the painting work, the pores should be closed and the grain should not be marked.
- We apply the product either by spray or spray gun at a distance of about 25 cm.
- When applying we must follow an application pattern, first horizontally and then vertically, applying the paint uniformly.
- We apply several coats, letting dry between them about 24 hours and sanding between them, to remove any remaining impurities.
- This work will be finished when the surface is completely smooth and without 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 will be able to 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.
At what temperature should the guitar be during and after the process?
– It is recommended to do it in a place whose temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees. If the painting or varnishing process is done in very hot or cold conditions, the final result may not be good.
Where should I carry out the process?
A clean place will be fundamental, to avoid dirt or dust particles to adhere to the surface.
Is sanding between coats mandatory?
It is not something you should always do, but it is advisable to eliminate the imperfections that remain in the paint at the end of each coat, as well as the particles that can adhere to the surface.
