ColorTone Polishing Compounds

The final step for a beautiful finish. Available in shop-size containers, or in 4-ounce bottles for smaller jobs.

A customer described it best: ColorTone® polishing compounds make the magic happen! Used by hand with a soft cloth or with foam rotary polishing pads, they transform a fine-sanded new finish into a dazzling high-gloss surface you can be proud of. ColorTone compounds remove fine sanding scratches on instrument finishes and plastic pickguards, with no silicone residue to hamper future refinishing.

If you're final-sanding a new finish with 600 to 800-grit papers, begin the polishing sequence with Coarse compound. If final sanding is done with 1200-grit, start with Medium compound. Fine compound follows Medium when a super-high gloss is desired.

Swirl Remover applied with a foam rotary pad removes buffing marks and extremely fine sanding scratches on fresh finishes. It can also be used by hand to bring out a higher lustre on new or aged finishes.

very nice

I have a few projects on the go (just waiting for it to get a bit warmer) so I have been getting my supplies ready.
This polish (swirl remover) works great! I have also got the med polish but will not be able to review that for about a month or so. Great product, speedy delivery thanks again Stewmac you do what you say you are going to do!

Bad Containers

(Customer's Reviews)


The medium polishing compound worked great but the container is a piece of crap. Really hard to open and even harder to close. I needed to clamp it in a vise and turn the top with vise grips. Getting the top back on was also a challenge. Really cheap thin plastic container. At this price I would expect something better.

Great stuff. Who would have ever thought that sandpaper could be taken from it's paper form and made into a compound which is basically what this is. Use the Colortone compounds from course and work your way up to medium, fine, then finish up with the swirl remover. Our shop has 4 different Stewmac polishing pads for each level. With patience you can a shine like glass as shown in on our Schecter sample photo below. Yes, that's a reflection of clouds in the sky.

Medium, Fine, Swirl Remover. You can use the Medium by itself to buff out light scratches, and sanded down drop fills. Follow it with the Fine and the Swirl Remover, and WOW.

Swirl Remover

This stuff works miracles. It is absolutely amazing and does just what it says. I could not believe how easy it is to use and the results were beyond expectations. If there was a way to give it more than 5 stars I would.

After the coarse coat, I thought: Wow, my finishing wasn't that bad! Arrived at the swirl remover, I thought: Wow, for a first finish job, it's a glossy one! Great product very easy to use and astounding result with inexpensive tools.
