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.

Love the fine polish with a foam pad. Really takes the buffer scratches to the next level of polish.

These make absolutely no difference. Yes, I followed all the directions. Been a guitar tech and luthier for years. Decided to try these out, and I guess I'll be sticking to what's i know works, because these do not.

This is really nice polish. I used micromesh up to 12,000 and then used fine polish with outstanding results.

Used on a final buff out on extremely hard finish. Used micro mesh to up to 12000 level blemish. Still had swirl marks. Polish was able hand bring the finish up to a extremely high gloss to match the original finish. Will purchase again.

My experience with Stew Mac products are they are always top notch. I purchased the smaller sizes, as I am small shop. Also, I wanted to try them out in a relatively small investment. I strongly recommend these products.
