    I've also bought the Deft Clear Wood Finish to do repairs and seal a neck decal fromhttp://www.woodcraft.com/
    It used to be nitro, doesn't say that now just lacquer.

    Woodcraft also carries other luthier finishes.

    If your hoping to just buy some without the hassle of mail order, just about anything that say's it's lacquer is usually nitro. The more common polyester and urathane is usually not refered to as lacquer. AFAIK, Deft is still nitro. I have also found aerosol labeled as lacquer at auto paint stores to be nitro.

    Interesting, I was under the impression that many aerosol laqcuers available on hardware store shelves were acrylic based?
