    This? I use it all the time. Really good product and easy to sand. But watch out, it sprays like a fire extinguisher so practice a bit first.

    I've been using this too and it runs like Forrest Gump!
    Pointers on technique appreciated.

    Spray lighter coats from about 12" away, You can always spray it with your guitar flat on it's back.

    So I found some BIN at a store near me but it's still nearly $15 a can. Man stuff is expensive here in the UK

    Why not just wipe it on?
    This stuff is great!
    Easy to apply straight out of a can with a rolled up cloth.
    Wax free so is compatible with most any top coat.

    Yep....anything I've ever applied to the top of Zinsser Seal Coat has stuck to it perfectly.

    YMMV of course...

    I have had the nitro soften it up enough that the wood gassing out allowed nasty bubbles. Especially when temps where higher. I switched to polycril for sealer, poly under good enough for Fuller [as in plast], not had a gas out bubble since...

    I use the BIN mainly as a primer for solid colors.

    The B.I.N in the can is already pre - tinited white and very easy to apply by brush. I am using it on three bodies this morning.

    I go through 2 cans a year. I seal almost everything I make with this stuff.

    Home Depot ( at least in the OKC area ) carries the B.I.N. in the can with white tint and in the spray can in clear.
