Nitrocellulose lacquer CANDY APPLE RED for guitar paint and all you need to learn how to paint a guitar


Guitar color Trans Candy Apple Red nitrocellulose and polyurethane

Vintage inspired guitar colors

Trans Candy Apple Red. 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.

Trans Candy Apple Red nitrocellulose guitar lacquer paint in a can

Professional finish. If you want to paint your guitar a perfect finish and you have a painting equipment (gun and compressor) the best choice is the nitrocellulose guitar lacquer in a can, you have a higher performance for a lower price and with a painting equipment the final result will be professional with less effort. It is recommended to dilute the product with solvent to adjust the viscosity and that the application is perfect, we have two types of solvents. The usual solvent used is Solvent Medium , but for more extreme humidity and temperature environmental conditions 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% humidity. The dilution percentage will depend on the painting equipment and its configuration, but the recommended is between 10 and 20% solvent. The most common gun peak is 1.3 to 1.5 and the compressor pressure is about 2.5 to 3 bars.

    From about 3/4 of the can made a very liquid spray for no reason, creating some drips, it’s an inconspicuous point and there was no problem. The color result is still amazing!
