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!

(Customer's Reviews)

Work well for my project and in the large size great for regular upkeep and maintenance


The best guitar polish

(Customer's Reviews)

Non abrasive to vintage finishes. Cleans up easy and I will never use anything else again!


Great on both glossy and matte finishes.

(Customer's Reviews)

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
