The nitrocellulose colour lacquer is used after the primer/ sealer coat. Its goal is really to provide a nice design to your guitar kit but it provides also an additional layer of protection of the guitar body. It will grant a durable finish to your electric guitar for many decades! The Translucid Candy Apple Red finishing was first used by Fender in 63 and is inspired by the Candy apple sugar. It was Leo Fender’s favourite colour. To achieve the candy apple red effect, you need to apply metal particles of silver or gold colour toned before. The red finishing colour applied after the metallic particle is a semi-transparent finish to reveal the metal particle below. To get this candy effect use our metallic sparkle finishing lacquer: Silver Sparkle, Inca Silver or Pearly Gold.
