    hi there everyone. I've heard that if you want to paint a bass or a guitar with nitro paint, you need to use a primer.
    is it true? is it necessary for primer to be also nitro-based or an acrylic one is ok too? and if a nitro paint needs nitro primer and I can't find any in my town, can I use a nitro paint as a primer, just another colour? thanks for your answers.
