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 is a must if you use Swirl Remover

By

Verified Buyer


I was working on an old 1950 Martin D-28 with really high action. Tried using other polishes behind the Swirl Remover, but it was awful with spots and streaks and re-polishing with Swirly. Used this polish over it and it apparently neutralized the Swirl Remover, because I can use a spray cleaner/polish again on the top to cover fingerprints. I was freaking out for awhile, but it did it's job.

GUITAR POLISH

Used this stuff for the first time yesterday on my martin that i probably havent cleaned in a year. I have used a lot of different polishes over the years and this is the best i have used. all the grime is gone and it looks like new.

As always with stewmac, it comes packaged nicely and safely, no worries about spilling during shipping.

Simply the best!!

I almost panicked, when Stew Mac went out of stock several months ago. My current bottle, that's lasted years, was finally running low. Tried other brands, didn't care for them, and not many are silicone free. Best clean and shine ever. What this stuff does for an old nitro finish is amazing. Last's forever too. You don't need much, and I maintain a dozen guitars at home, and give a final shine when I setup or repair my student's guitars. The only negative is the smell, I like it personally, but a student, once noticed it and commented.

I bought this because I play outside. I play 3 hours at a time at Farmer's Markets. My guitar gets sweaty with sun tan lotion etc. After one application and playing in 90 degree weather for 3 hours, I was able to wipe off the haze fairly easy. I am giving it a "Good" for now.

Amazing Product!

I bought this to clean up and shine the wooden parts on my 1927 Vega Artist model tenor banjo. Wow! Cleans and polishes beautifully! 90 years of grime gone.

Next, I used it on the resonator of an inexpensive student- level banjo, with very little finish.
Wow! It even brought out the richness and flame of this instrument.

This is simply the best cleaner/polisher I've ever used!

even after vigorous shaking, it still seemed watered down. The shine and polish from plain old carnuba wax was superior.
