    when I ordered stain nitro lacquer from Stewmac, the lady said I'd need a few cans to finish a guitar. I followed the instructions, put 7 coats on the guitar but I've only used one can (and theres still some left). Is this normal?
     
  2. Pretty much...

    Nitro makes a very thin finish. You can't go wrong with as many coats as you can just to "build" a deep finish. This helps in protection and will pay off when you are polishing the finish. Keep going - I would put at least 3 more on there for good measure.
