Preservation Polish

About This Item

Silicone-free and repair shop friendly, with no wax or silicone residues. 12-ounce bottle.

Preservation Polish gently cleans, polishes and protects lacquer and varnish finishes.

Ordinary guitar polishes shine by leaving a long-lasting silicone residue that's very hard to remove. If your guitar ever needs a repair, the silicone will prevent glue or finish from adhering, making even simple repairs more difficult and costly.

Simply apply Preservation Polish with a clean cotton cloth. It leaves no wax or silicone residues, so there's no cloudy film, stickiness or build-up. And it won't discolor the patina of vintage finishes.

Luthiers and repair shops: You've learned the hard way that guitars and silicone are bad company. Silicone residue makes it difficult for glue or finish to adhere properly and is a primary cause of "fisheyes" and cratering in lacquer finishes. It's even worse if silicone reaches bare wood or gets into the cracks of older finishes. Even the simplest finish repairs can become more difficult, time-consuming and costly. Do your colleagues a favor — use Preservation Polish and recommend it to your customers!

Perfect for nitro finishes

By

Verified Buyer


Anyone who has a nitro finished guitar knows how delicate and susceptible the finish can be, and the idea of consistent cleaning is sometimes not that beneficial as the constant rubbing and applying of cleaners can do more harm than good. Ive used other cleaners from some of the big brands e.g. Dunlop and these never did what I considered an acceptable job, not to mention they contain silicone which is a "no-no" as the constant use will leave buildup residue. StewMac's Preservation polish is a different story however, I used a bit on my RI 61 SG which Ive had for a few years now and is starting to show swirls and hairline scratches which again, sometimes just breathing on a nitro finish will be enough to scratch it! I was very pleased with the Preservation Polish. For one thing there is no streaks or leftover residue on the guitar once applied and wiped. I always found myself trying to remove some of the extra cleaning formula of other cleaners even if I used very little, talk about counterproductive! Anyone wondering about this should stop thinking and just try it, you wont regret it, and the sooner you use it the sooner you'll begin to extend the life of your guitar.

Been using the Dunlop stuff for years and decided to give this a shot and I'm glad I did. Made my tele shine like it hasn't in years. Won't be going back to the Dunlop stuff, preservation polish all the way!

Very impressive!!!

I've been using various guitar polishes for many years and this truly is the best that I have ever found. It is super easy to apply and remove and leaves no greasy residue like some of the other products on the market. It works equally as well on the wood and metal components. I'll be sticking with this product from now on.

This worked nice. I have to wrestle my guitars around so much after they are wet finished with remaining work, it is disappointing. Flaws jump out at me. I get disappointed. My junky substandard inlays of silver, stone, mother of pearl, eggs shell embarrasses me. Smudges. Places I had to do 1200 grit sanding. I put this polish on and smile. Then it looks hand made and new.
