    I’m using Watco lacquer on a guitar now and have to say it is working like like Regular Sherwin Williams lacquer that I mixed myself. It dries fast and hard and recoats quickly. It comes in spray cans from Wal mart for $8.

    Zombie, but get the right filters in your mask if you use Watco. Don't ask if I found out the hard way or not....

    Good stuff IMO.

    Dry and ready for some wet block sanding...

    I used watco early on a few times. It is nitro as said & works.

    It tends to dry a little slower in my experience than higher quality lacquers. I find it works better thinned a bit more than higher quality lacquers.
    It doesn't compare to the Sherwin Williams LOVOC I use but it does the job.

    I deleted the earlier post asking eallen about the Sherwin-Williams lacquer he shoots. They say "There are no stupid questions", but sometimes I prove them wrong..........
