If used car finishes on furniture, and I've also sprayed a dozen cars
with lacquer. The general principle is that the "hottest" finish cannot
be on top.
Lacquer (and Lacq thinner) are the hottest finishes around and will
"lift" compounds under it if they are less volatile.
One way around this is to spray a sealer first, let dry thoroughly, and
then use the lacquer. I would try this on a piece of scap wood.
Incompatible finishes might look OK for weeks and then begin to checker
Sorry for the term "oil stain"
I am a Hardwood floor refinisher, and we call it oil stain.
It is Pittsburg paints Gunstock stain. I use it to match hardwood floor stains.
It is highly pigmented. I put this into sanding sealer for the first wash coat.
Then sanded it with 220 grit. It is over ASH.
Then stained with Gunstock. Dried two days by now.
I wouldn't think that you would have a problem with stain, but you may want

No problems. Most high end guitars are finished exactly this way. Just

you encounter it. I had an electric guitar custom made a while ago and it
was nitro finished. I used to get a little gumming on the neck after
playing it for a while. The gumming rubbed off with a dry rag and all was
well, but it is a characteristic of nitro. After a while this went away, as
the nitro cured completely.
Thanks for your help. I feel comfortable going out to the shop and shooting my
The laquer is Coranado White Laquer. I will be doing it with an HLVP sprayer.
I believe I have to cut it up to 50% And I do plan on shooting sample boards
Sealcoat is something I am VERY familiar with. I use it on flooring work.
Love that I can apply waterborne or oil poly over it.
I guess one very thin brushed on coat, then lightly scuff with a maroon scotch
brite pad. Then spray on lacquer
