I say "most" because I haven't used every aerosol nitrocellulose lacquer, even though there aren't that many. For reference, I've only used the nitro available from Guitar ReRanch and Ohio Valley Nitro. These have both given me a bit of trouble with splatter and consistency from can to can. Nothing unbearable, but enough to cause me to keep looking. As a hobbyist builder and guitar refinisher, I don't have need of a pro spray rig, or a place to store one. Aerosol cans are a godsend for me, even if they require a bit more technique and patience. The Behlen lacquer seems to spray a thicker coat, which may drive you crazy if you're not the patient type, since it'll require a little more curing before sanding or applying build coats. I may be wrong in my logic, but it makes sense to me. This, of course, also means that your build coats will build faster, which I love. After going through 2 cans, I haven't noticed ANY splatter, and the coats themselves seem more gel-like, which may be the result of the thicker saturation of each coat. I can't speak for its durability, since my only experience with the Behlen has been in the last 2 weeks. For ease of use, though, and quality of the initial application, I think it's my go-to clearcoat until someone convinces me otherwise.

This will give you the same finish as the large factories if you follow directions and don't rush your work. You will end up with a beautiful guitar. If you experiment with this finish, be sure and use scrap wood as things do happen. By the way, don't use Nitro-cellulose instrument lacquer over automobile base coat paint. I refinished a Strat for a friend and used base coat that he had matched for the color he wanted. Everything was great,, even after spraying the nitro-c, for about 20 seconds and the nitro-c reacted with the base coat and I ended up with a beautiful crinkle pattern all over the guitar. Needless to say, I had to strip the guitar and start all over, using the clear coat that came with the base coat. Maybe my experience will save somebody else from making the same mistake.

The odor is very strong. I have been using a spray hood, opening a window, using a mask and taking frequent breaks to let the room air out. I have gotten a few headaches regardless. It seems to be coating with little "spitting" or "dripping" as lacquer is known to do.

This is great stuff. Makes me look like a pro. Here's a tip: remove and clean the nozzle with WD-40 between uses. This is a nitrocellulose product; I've been informed scuff coat is not necessary, but I'd still hit it unless the previous coat is perfect.

Great stuff. The mix of lacquer to slow is just about perfect. Their sand & sealer is also amazing...lays flat and really fills in the small stuff to leave the perfect base for the top coats. I would say this is the best canned lacquer on the market right now. You can to a totally pro job (assuming you've got finishing skills) and get perfect results. Highly recommended.

Used this to refinish a bass drum hoop. One can was enough for 6 layers, and it looks just as good as the factory finish sheen on the drums. Don't know about durability yet. I used this on top of Rustoleum automotive acrylic laquer. Strangely, I got the crinkle cracking pattern effect that another reviewer mentioned but only on the spots where the rubber-padded bass drum lugs make contact with the hoop. I guess despite light sanding, cleaning, and the color coat, that there was some residual residue from the rubber that reacted with the finish?? Well it doesn't really matter since you can't see those parts in the end so I'm happy with it.

Excellent product. It takes time, and many coats, but the end results are well worth the patience. Used it on a classic old Martin D -28 and it did not effect the sound, in fact I think it may have improved the volume.

The Behlen String Instrument Nitrocelouse Instrument lacquer is just incredible for final top coat finishing of your guitar project. Lays on smooth and easy in light coats. Read the label for proper instructions and you should get a high-gloss perfect finish with this product. I will use it on all of my future guitar projects. 5-Stars !!!
