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!

This is a miracle product! It is the best I have ever used, and removes small scratches and such that I had thought were permanent. Highly recommended.

Good product. Have used this polish for 10 years. All types of guitar finishes. A little goes a long way. Easy application, no residue.

Needs a different application bottle

By Luke1236 from Baltimore
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, January 29, 2014

The polish seems to work well. It is very thin and watery so it is difficult to apply in the current bottle because it runs all over the place and saturates your cloth. Over all it is cheap and I would buy it again, the bottle is huge so it will last a long time. Give it a shot

Greatest Stuff in the World !

I have been using this product for a number of years and, all I have to say is...... Greatest Stuff in the World !!!! I have used this on old to new guitars, this stuff works period. It works great on furniture as well. I've always had a supply of this stuff around.

what is Martin thinking???

By FarmBoy from Houston, TX
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, January 10, 2014

Martin guitar sells a polishing product that is absolutely a waste of time and money. All my acoustics are martins and I only use this product from stewmac. Not sure why Martin would advocate putting anything else on their finely crafted instruments but if you need a guitar to shine like the sun without leaving any residue this is for you.

It is amazing what this polish does. My friends commented on how my guitars look like new. I will use only this from now on.

Short time review

(Customer's Reviews) Friday, August 16, 2013

I have only been using this product for a short while. It seems to work pretty well and I have no issues with the smell one reviewer spoke about. I am sure this product will work well and I will end up reordering when this bottle gets low!

You'd have to break out the buffing wheel and compound to get a better shine!
