Nitrocellulose guitar BLACK GLOSS and everything you need to paint electric guitar
Guitar color Black Gloss nitrocellulose and polyurethane
Colors for vintage-inspired guitars
Black Gloss. Based on original Fender and Gibson colors. To develop our colors for guitars we have been based on original samples from the 50s and 60s. After great work and exhaustive study by our laboratory and technical department, we have achieved some colors for guitars that faithfully recreate the tones of vintage Fender and Gibson guitars to paint electric guitar. During those years until today, it should be borne in mind that guitar colors vintage have changed a lot over the years due to the aging of nitrocellulose lacquer and changes in the brands’ own colors. Therefore two guitars finished in 1960 with fender card colors today can be totally different between them or with respect to a more current guitar.

Professional finish. If you want to paint your guitar a perfect finish and you have a painting equipment (spray gun and compressor) the best choice is nitrocellulosic varnish in a can, you have a higher performance by a lower price and with a painting team the final result will be professional with less effort. It is recommended to dilute the product with solvent to adjust the viscosity and for the application to be perfect, we have two types of solvents. The usual solvent used is Solvent Medium , but for ambient conditions of humidity and temperature more extreme we can use Solvent Retard to avoid boiling and veiling in the finish. The optimal application conditions are between 15 and 25 ºC of temperature and 50 to 70% of humidity. The percentage of dilution will depend on the painting equipment and its configuration, but it is recommended between 10 to 20% solvent. The most common gun peak is 1.3 to 1.5 and the compressor pressure is about 2.5 to 3 bars.
Maximum resistance respecting the sound. Black Gloss. If what you are looking for is to protect your guitar and achieve a durable finish with classic colors, your choice is polyurethane, a 2-component product that offers maximum resistance and fast drying while respecting the sound and vibration of the wood. With the purchase of a 500 ml can of color it is always combined with a 250 ml bottle of 190046 catalyst. The mixing ratio of the product is 2 parts of color to 1 of hardener (2: 1). As with canned nitrocellulose, the viscosity can be adjusted with either of the two solvents we offer. Once the mixture is made, it has a life time of 2 hours to be able to apply it. Apply in thin coats waiting 8 to 12 hours between coats and always sand to tone the previous coat and ensure grip.
