The polyurethane colour lacquer is used after the primer/ sealer coat. Its goal is really to provide a nice design to your guitar kit but it provides also an additional layer of protection of the guitar body. It will grant a durable finish to your electric guitar for many decades! We propose here a total of four different polyurethane colour lacquer to get a natural finish of your guitar body or electric guitar neck:
- Translucid amber gloss or matt finishing: it is a lacquer for natural finish adding a vintage amber tint to your DiY guitar body and it is perfect if you want to do a vintage neck finishing. Get vintage tone of old necks thin layers based matching finish, until the desired intensity.
- Translucid Classic Fender butterscotch finishing: This colour lacquer was originally introduced in 1952 by Fender and is completely linked to the telecaster. It is a semi-pigment colour. Depending on the number of layer will reveal the grain.
- Translucid Semi Pigmented Road Worn Blonde finishing: Reveal the natural grain of the woods. Apply thin layers until the hue and the tone match the guitar kit finishing you’re looking for. It is recommended to apply this finish in wood with much grain, and even use a dye or filler to highlight dark grain and look better through the finish.
POLYURETHANE COLOR LACQUER COMPATIBILITY WITH OUR GUITAR FINISHING PRODUCTS.
The polyurethane colour lacquer is compatible with all our polyurethane products: polyurethane primer, polyurethane varnish as well as our grain filler and our polish pastes.
POLYURETHANE COLOR LACQUER PREPARATION AND APPLICATION.
You will need to mix the polyurethane colour lacquer with the provided hardener with a mixing ratio of 2:1. When the mixture is done, it has a lifetime of 2hrs to apply it before it is hard. Apply thin layer to avoid any drip and get a homogeneous distribution and wait between 8 to 12 hours between coats. We also advise to sand slightly before putting the next coat to ensure that new coat will attached well. Note that Polyurethane is toxic (still less compared to nitrocellulose chemical compound) and need protection: google, mask and gloves as available on our website.Also if you want to spray the lacquer – which we strongly advice – and you don't have the material and don't want to invest in a spray gun, The Guitar Kit Fabric proposes the rechargeable spray preval product. With this item you can add the polyurethane lacquer with half of hardener, mix it and spray it on your guitar body. The preval spray will allow a good spraying of the sealer and can spray up to 500mL before needing to be recharged.
In case you are interested in revealing the veneer with a transparent finish, this can be performed by applying first black grain filler or black dye or with a sponge or spray gun and then sanding to mark only the grain and the veneer. The secret lies in the application of thin layers based matching finish, until the hue and desired concentration is obtained.Further instruction will be provided along with your order.
