Paint For Guitars

Recommended Posts

I've been painting my solid color guitars with automotive paint ( mainly for the availablity of any color), and my clear coated ones with nitrocellulose instrument laquer. However, the nitro kicks my butt with the fumes, and from all I've seen on this site, the auto enamal plus a clear coat is probably messing with the tone of the guitar. I would like to go with a water based clear coat that I can get from Stew-Mac, but it seems like there's not a lot of different colors to choose from.

I guess what I'm asking is; what is the prefered system to use with custom guitars, and where can you find a wider selection of colors for that system?
