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!

This stuff is the Bee's Knee's. I use it on all 16 of my guitars, fret board, head stock, you name it. I was a little panicked when StewMac ran out...glad it's back in stock. It gets rid of all manner of gunk, hides minor scratches, and leaves a beautiful shine. Makes the guitar case smell good too. I find it works better in a spray bottle but that's just me. My 2004 MIJ Epiphone Elitist "Tak Matsumoto" Les Paul.

I've been using Preservation Polish on my acoustics every time I changed strings on one of my instruments for 10 years now. Time to buy a new bottle.

Increadibly Good!

I've used some very good polishes, but there isn't anything that works so easy and you can safely use it over any part of your instrument. Very high luster and great cleaning action.

This is the third or fourth bottle of this polish I have purchased and I have never been disappointed with the results! It brings out the shine of any finish, and is great for cleaning finishes that have been neglected. I will continue to keep this on my bench!

Great on both glossy and matte finishes.

Before buying this polish, I check with Stew-Mac customer service to ensure that it was appropriate for the matte finish on my Epiphone EF-500RCCE. They were correct, it works great on this guitar and also on the high gloss finish of my Les Paul.

Great product

Cleans & Shines

Yes, I am one of those who abuses/ignores his guitars...even tho I love them. But it was definitely time to change strings, clean, and do a new set up. I was missing the tools for the "clean" part when I began researching what to use. I'm glad I didn't get something from the big box music store and went for Preservation Polish. It cleans very well and leaves the finish the way it came out of the factory. Some stubborn spots took an extra application or 2, but it was amazing at how easily the grime came off. I have some 20 or so guitars and the bottle should last through them all. Highly recommended.
