"brasso" for polishing lacquer

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by wilser, Mar 5, 2005.

  1. Hello,
    has anybody used 'brasso' to polish a lacquer finish? I tested on a test piece even though it says 'not' to use it on lacquer and it came out very nice. Anybody has experience with it? Any potential problems I might be overseeing?

    If the info on the Brasso container says "not to use on lacquer", I would stear clear of it. The may be something in the Brasso that could soften or dis-color the finish that may not be immediately apparent. There are a lot of great products to buff and polish lacquer.....I'd stick with products that were designed for this particular application.
