ColorTone Polishing Compounds

About This Item

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.

Great for small touch ups and nut finishing

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the Fine polishing compound to work on finishing a couple of replacement bone nuts. But i have a sweet Strat body that i bought for a great price with some missing chunks of the poly coating. I smoothed and wet sanded the spots and added some color to the exposed wood. Then did the last little bit of polishing to clean up the web sanding with the Fine polishing and it looks great! Perfect solution for small fixes.

I love the product....the containers, not so much. The pour spouts generally don't work beyond the first use if at all and it's very difficult to get all the product out of the bottles. I'd suggest something like a toothpaste tube

I bought an old guitar that was dirty and had significant scratches. Some heavy rubbing remover the marks.

Wonderful  scratch remover

I bought a used black Epi SG Pro that was flawless except for several noticeable scuffs near the output jack. Regular guitar polish wasn’t removing them, but 15 minutes of hand polishing with the fine grit compound completely removed them.

Custom config and refinish

By

Verified Buyer


I have always wanted a double cutaway Les Paul w/ mini humbuckers. I made one, and refinished it in black nitrocellulose lacquer. The results were awesome. Patience was the key. Stew-Mac was the provider for all the color, lacquers, buffing and polishing compounds and tools.
Thanks for all of your support.

I've switched!

By

Verified Buyer


For 30 years, I have hand polished my guitars, using automotive polishes. No silicon, or strange waxes. Just the grit that I liked. Hand applied so that I don't have varying thicknesses of finish when done. Well, I was getting low on some of my buffing compounds and I decided to try these StewMac products. You know, the grit compounds and the suspension agent, for these products are really nice. Even the smell is nice ! I don't take power tools to my instruments, so I have a real feel for how these polishes work. I will be using ColorTone polishes for now on. I get a wet-look, by hand. JW guitars, Nv.

Must Have These!

By

Verified Buyer


I have used many polishing products through my 36 years in stringed instrument repair and building. These are hands down the best! Using the right amount of pressure and the right motion gives me everything from high gloss to a vintage off-gloss. I used it on a 1967 Gibson ES335 in cherry the other day and it was not detectable where the lacquer had been rubbed. I cannot work without it!
