    I want to use a hand brush using nitrocellulose guitar paint. My question is:

    What type of 'hair' on the brush would produce the best finish?

    I have a very expensive set of badger hair brushes that I used for brushing lacquer. This was a long time ago so there are likely some equivalent synthetic brushes available today. Here's some examples :

    Gramercy Ox-Hair Finish Brushes - Lee Valley Tools

    Oval Varnish Brushes - Lee Valley Tools

    Japanese Varnish Brush - Lee Valley Tools

    Mohawk | Badger Flowing Chisel 404 DOUBLE THICK

    If you prefer a smoother application with fewer brush marks, you might opt for a brush with softer natural bristles, such as squirrel or ox hair.
