EM 6000 Lacquer
One choice for your Custom Guitar finish is a water-based lacquer made by Target Coatings. This lacquer has all of the characteristics that are prized in solvent-based finishes but is environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
This finish is often compared to nitrocellulose lacquer that was used by Gibson and Fender in the 1950's. EM6000 offers the most protection for your instrument and will buff to an ultra-high gloss.
