You should be able to apply it like normal clear coat, but be very careful; it's VERY poisonous if inhaled in large doses, so paint outside or in a well ventilated area.

On a side note, if this is your first time finishing a guitar I wouldn't recommend using nitrocellulose right away. Start of small, like a Duplicolor clear coat, available at Schucks Auto Supply or G.I. Joes.

Is there another way to satin besides nitrocellulose?

I don't know if it's the clear coat that makes your finish satin, but I know there are some paints that bear the satin effect.

What would give me the satin effect, I don't want to have my guitar with traditional laquer.

yea and in case you didnt know nitrocellulose is pretty explosive so maby you'd want to use poly....

^ poly is worse than nitro.


Satin lacquer is applied the same as gloss, what makes it satin is a flattening agent.

Cool, where can I buy the Satin Laquer, or should I just use the reranch stuff.
