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!

I used this on some beaten up repairs, and on my own brand new shiny instruments and its great on everything. Nice large bottle.

This worked nice. I have to wrestle my guitars around so much after they are wet finished with remaining work, it is disappointing. Flaws jump out at me. I get disappointed. My junky substandard inlays of silver, stone, mother of pearl, eggs shell embarrasses me. Smudges. Places I had to do 1200 grit sanding. I put this polish on and smile. Then it looks hand made and new.

Great for my guitar shop!

I use this on my own, and clients' guitars. Love the fact that it seems non-greasy, and does not hinder left hand slides on the neck.

My Favorite Polish

I have tried other brands, and they just seem to smear around. This one goes on and comes off clean. Also, no silicone. Some polishes don't even say.

I purchased Preservation Polish after reading of it on Stew Mac's site. I currently use Gibson and Martin Guitar polish which do a decent job. After using the Preservation Polish I wlll no longer go back to the Gibson and Martin Guitar polish. The Preservation Polish definitely outshines them and has made me a believer. Excellent product.

This is the only polish I use on my guitars. I feel confident that it will do the job nicely and not be harmful to the finish of any of my guitars.

Doesn't leave cloudy/milky patina like other stuff does.

I don't get any A plus grade vintage instruments, just old beaters through a pawn shop that need to be cleaned up and resold, so it works great for my needs. Doesn't leave cloudy/milky patina like other stuff does. I'll let the internet trolls argue about what's truly the best guitar polish while I snooze.
