Nitrocellulose lacquer on Variax Standard

Recommended Posts

Hello

I bought a Variax Standard guitar a few months ago and I've been offered a Hercules Stand GS415.

The box tells it is not suitable for long-term use with guitars with nitrocellulose lacquer.

I could not find whether the lacquer used on Variax Standard guitars is nitrocellulose lacquer.

 

Can anyone let me know?

 

Thank you very much.

It’s not nitro... it’s a polyurethane  gloss finish. The vast majority of guitars made nowadays have a poly finish, as nitro is toxic and spraying it is a bit more problematic now. Nitro is also much less durable than poly.

And nobody likes Nitro, because it's so hard to strip for re-paint and do cosmetic repairs and touch-ups.
