Acrylic lacquer vs. nitrocellulose lacquer. I know Ron Kirn and others love nitrocellulose lacquer. My dad used to paint cars with acrylic lacquer. Dad was a hack car painter, but he swore by lacquer. He made beautiful finishes with both types of lacquer paint. When all he could find was Acrylic lacquer he began using it. He didn't search high and low for the nitrocellulose lacquer. (Ron Kirn says Sherwin Williams has it now.) The beauty of lacquer is that it goes on thin in many coats with wet sanding in between. Enamels - once its on and you made a run or a fish eye or orange peel, there is no practical way to wet sand it out and respray without losing all your work. My question: Does Acrylic lacquer cure (and dry) faster than nitrocellulose lacquer? Wouldn't Acrylic lacquer be a good choice for guitar finishes? Easier to work with, faster curing with the benefit of being able to wet sand between coats for high gloss sheen. Where am I wrong?
