The Mohawk Classic Instrument Lacquer which replaces the H. Behlen Classic Instrument Lacquer remains a high-quality nitrocellulose lacquer specifically designed for wooden string instruments. This Classic Instrument Lacquer allows for the special expansion and contraction that can occur due to the unique construction of string instruments.

For best results, apply Classic Instrument Lacquer over Mohawk E-Z Vinyl® Sealer to insure maximum flexibility and build.

For Professional Use Only

Good lacquer. Definitely on the "amber" side of the colour spectrum.
