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!

Not greasy

(Customer's Reviews)

This is the only polish you should use if you have new, old, vintage or just worn guitars. It does not fog up old finishes and brngs new life to vintage nitrocellulose laquer finishes. I have over 50 guitars and many are vintage like my 1956 Fender Stratocaster, 1959 Gibson LG-0, 1952 Fender Telecaster and 1957 Gibson LEs Paul Junior. This is the only polish I will use on all of them.

A very Good product to have since I found out it has no  silicones.

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this polish because it contains no silicones, and it's nice to have
in the arsenal. It doesn't take long but gives my Martins a good cleaning
and polish. It's not greasy. It's good stuff to have around.


Great Polish

Works great for cleaning up messy guitars.
