Royal-Lac Super-blonde shellac-based wood finish, 16 ounces
Video: Overview and Application of Royal-Lac Products
Coverage depends on how the finish is applied. If sprayed, a lot of finish is wasted due to overspray loss. If brushed, some finish is wasted due to leveling. Padding is where the least loss takes place. Based on the above, a thumb rule can be applied. A pint is required for a single guitar with some leftover if it is sprayed, brushed, or padded. Therefore, it would be safe to assume that 2 pints or a quart will be sufficient for 3 guitars.
If denatured alcohol is unavailable in your state, equipment can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol which is readily available. Acetone is also a good alternative.
To dilute Royal-Lac, denatured alcohol is recommended, but if denatured alcohol is difficult to get, use an 85:15 (5.67:1) mixture of Isopropyl alcohol: acetone. If you find that the open time is too long, the addition of a bit of acetone will remedy the situation. Conversely for increasing open time isopropyl alcohol can be added. An 85:15 mixture is a good starting point.
We recommend a cure time of 30 days on this product.

Good finish...bad cans.
I bought the sealer and finish. Tried it on a test top, and was really impresses. Beautiful gloss shine when all buffed.
HOWEVER, today I noticed some sticky goo on my tools on my on bench, and a puddle of goo.. It turned out to be the Royal-Lac can was leaking. I spent the morning cleaning up instead of producing. Not happy at all, and doubt I’ll give it a second chance.

I really like this stuff
I've put several coats on an archtop over the past two weeks, sometimes skipping a day in between. It's amazing how smoothly you can put this on with a good brush. I feel like with more practice I might be able to skip wet-sanding and buffing altogether! ... The long cure time is a slight drawback for me however. Today, since it's winter and the typical temp in my house & shop is in the mid-upper 60°s, I put the guitar in a spare bathroom with a space heater keeping the temp between 80° and 85°. This seems to help. Anyway, I'm very happy with the product, but I think I'll try the post-catalyzed version next time.
