About Us

 Great Lakes Custom Colour is a family owned and operated company. We are here to supply people with the best Nitrocellulose lacquers, guitar parts and finishing products money can buy. Shipped right to your door. We have been a private company for years (buying, selling, building, repairing and finishing guitars) but after years of being asked to make our colours available we decided to make our lacquer and colours available to the public in the spring of 2020. Making us Canada's first ever custom colour nitrocellulose lacquer company. Our products are professional grade nitrocellulose lacquers. They are the best you'll find in North America. 

We do all of the work ourselves from filling orders to finishing instruments. When you email or call you'll be speaking directly with us. We want our customers to have the best. That's why when you buy from us you will receive the exact lacquer we use in our shop. Filled specifically for you by us. Customer service is very important to us. If you have a problem, question, concern, etc. Please reach out to us. We will always stand behind our products and look after our loyal customers.

We have the best selection of colours you'll find and have been hard at developing them for years. Between what we offer plus our ability to match custom colours for people your options are endless and will put your build above any other retail finish you'll find other places. 

We offer options for many finishers with our custom filled aerosol cans as well as options for professional builders. 


We also help with custom colours for vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles that require nitrocellulose finishes.

If you're interested in a cheap off-shore made kit to spray with krylon, tremclad or any other imitation nitro colours you find on the internet this isn't the place. If you're here for a quality parts and custom colour nitrocellulose finishes. You're in the right place.

My father has retired as of 2022 and we wish him a happy healty retirement from the guitar finishing trade. 

If you have any questions please feel free to email the shop. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your support.
