I have recently taken to using Rustins Plastic Coat which is a two part. Can be brushed on or sprayed. Applying several thin coats about an hour apart and then ready for polishing after about two days or so. I've been pleased as previously I've had to wait weeks to get to the polishing stage.

@chrisot I've got the starter pack of Rustins for my finish experiments (I'm going to be trying different topcoats, stain, sealer and filler combinations on small test pieces, so I think the small quantity in the starter pack should be enough for evaluation )

Have you just used it over bare wood, or have you tried any stains, sealers, whatever underneath?

The picture attached to my post shows guitar that I stained using water based stain from Crimson guitars. I've also used it on an acoustic and again it was pretty easy to work with although not very nice to breathe. Good ventilation and a mask are pretty much essential I would say.

@chrisot

Thanks. Other than the mask/ventilation thing, any other advice?

I sprayed it using a cheap spray gun that came with my cheapish compressor. Seemed to work fine, easier than brushing and better spray than rattle cans.  I have used nitro in the past and I always damage it when buffing it as I'm impatient and/or clumsy.

So your saying I probably should leave my nitro finished jazzmaster in the conservatory? 

Serioulsy though, I used some rattle cans of nitro from northwest guitars. Obviously well ventilated and using a proper mask unlike the guy who demos it on YT who takes his mask of immediately after spraying 🙄 aa they say, if you can smell it it’s already in your blood stream.
