This is not to place to have the discussion on what nitro cellulose lacquer does on a guitar sound wise. However we do believe the tone is more open and transparant when using top grade nitro applied in thin layers. Next to that, it ages nicely. And that’s important too!
All our guitars are finished in nitro cellulose lacquer. And not just the clear coat. We use nitro from top to bottom, including filler, primer, color- & top coats. The nitro we use is custom made for us in Spain and made with vintage specifications.
