Behlen Stringed Instrument Lacquer
I use it on all my gutair necks
Woild buy again.
Gives a beautiful finish.
This lacquer has a nice flow and worked well on my guitar body, until I noticed that by the third coat the can started to spit out dried nodules of lacquer, and it made the finish look like it had pimples... I used 5 cans on this project, every one of them produced the same results... Most were able to be sanded out, but a couple of them dried with little white dots that I had to work out by removing them and filling in the holes and using "lacquer melt" to make it right... For my next project I am going to use Deft spray lacquer... not as nice in flow characteristics, but at least it does not have this spray problem...
Great spray finish, no compressor needed
I used this product to for the top coat on a maple snare drum shell. It was easy to apply and yielded excellent results.
Easy to use for those of us with no spray guns.
