BUY 4 AEROSOLS OR CANS OF LACQUER AND GET 1 FREE!

Our Products

All of our lacquers are made available in aerosol, 4oz, 8oz , quart and gallon variations. Our lacquer is the highest quality in North America and is supplied ready to spray. This ensures you have the best nitrocellulose possible and the right amount for any project you may have. Whether you are a first time finisher or a professional builder we have exactly what you need to get the job done right and in a true 100% correct finish. We've done everything from guitars, motorcyles, cars to custom paintings.

We are the only shop in North America to mix and fill orders fresh when ordered. You can be assured you're getting fresh products that haven't been sitting on a shelf for over a year. Every order with us truly is a custom order filled just for you.

Our dyes are world class. They are able to be mixed in almost anything. Water, Alcohol, Lacquer Thinner etc.

Our wet sanding and polishing kit is the best you'll find and is specific for guitar finishing. Allowing you to sand less and still achieve the level of mirror finish you're after.

A lot of years and attention to detail have gone into our colours and finishing products. There isn't a shop around that provides what we can provide for your build as far as finishing goes. If you have a question please feel free to contact us.

Custom Shop

Our Custom Shop Bodies and Necks rival the best in North America. Made specifically for you. See our Custom Order page or our Pre-Order products to get started on your build.

See our Vintage Refinishing to send us your unfinished guitar part. Or have a vintage recreation made for you with our Custom Order Bodies and Custom order Body/Neck Packages.

With the best selection of Custom colours and Vintage colours available to you your options are endless.

Once you've decided on your part or build you will be contacted by us via email or phone call (your choice) to discuss your order and your needs specifically.

We can make/alter/age/fade any colour you need. Whether you need translucent pastel colours like Sonic Blue, Daphne Blue or Shell Pink, or something like Surf Pearl, Faded Colours or a colour you have a sample of you own. We can do it.

Custom/Bulk Orders

We can also supply you with custom orders or bulk orders. We have our products available in quarts or gallons for people who need them. Check our custom order page or contact us to get started. We supply builders in North America with the guitar finishing products they need to get their builds right.

We also do colour matches, alter in stock colours and help with finish repairs. With decades of experience we have the knowledge to help you with any project or issue you may have.

Testimonials

"I would like to thank Great Lakes Custom Colour for their great service. I sent a question by email after hours and still received a reply within 3 hours...totally unexpected. With my answer I made my order and it arrived 2 days later. If the product is half as good as the service I'll be happy."

Mike

I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with my experience with Great Lakes Custom Colour. The customer service and support received since my initial email has been truly exceptional. Great Lakes did research on Gibson factory colours and provided custom paint matches for a nominal fee within a week of my request. I’ve bombarded them with countless questions on the finishing process via email and have been met with timely responses, advice and resources to ensure my project is a success. I HIGHLY recommend trusting Great Lakes for all your refinishing needs. This is the company to order Nitro from in Canada. Thanks again Great Lakes!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get customized colours?

Yes, because we are a custom shop that offers different services we mix and fill our colours in house. Looking for a custom shop super faded shell pink, sonic blue or seafoam green? We can do that. We are constantly developing new colours. If we have it in stock we can customize it for you. Send us an email to get started on your custom colour.

Shipping

In Canada any business must follow the rules and regulations of the MTO/TDG. Businesses using any shipper (Fedex, UPS, Purolator) etc must have packages shipped properly under these regulations. Anyone who is caught not doing so is subject to large fines that can cripple a business. Dangerous goods are no different. Lacquer itself falls under UN 1263. Nitrocellulose falls under UN 2059 and Aerosols are UN 1950. They must be shipped in consumer quantities or (Limited Quantities) and labeled as such. Our shipping rate follows these rules and regulations. If you notice your shipping increases it is due to these rules. We take great pride and speed in our shipping. Typically 1-3 business days in central Canada. We use only recyclable material in all of our packing other than our bubble wrapped guitar bodies. No peanuts no styrofoam. We know everyone hates it anyways.
