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.

Very nice light polishing compound.

I purchased the swirl remover polishing compound and it works very well to remove scratches and marks.I will be using it on my newly finished guitars.When I recieved it today I hand polished an acoustic guitar and it took out most of the small scratches very easily.

just another regular polish

I was unable to re create the same results as the other reviewers. Despite using the recommended technique,no improvement in luster or shine was achieved.

It's basically the same as the Virtuoso polish but more expensive and thinner.

Works Great.

Use this along with the buffing pads they offer to achieve a brilliant luster . Gives a great shine without needing a pro buffing outfit.

This is REALLY cool stuff. You can really polish your finish to a mirror shine with this and the Swirl remover is great for bringing back a nice shine to blunt old finishes.

Great product

These compounds are amazing.They are quick and easy to use. I was impressed with how well they worked by simply hand rubbing them in. Either by buffer or by hand they work fast and produce excellent results. Love em

I bought these compounds 5 years ago and, in my opinion, they are the best product you can find on the market (I tested several of them)

Polishing Compounds

I purchased the Medium Color Tone compound and the Swirl Remover. Both are great products and totally work as advertised. I was able to bring out the shine in my 1981 Les Paul that had been missing since its birth. With the help of the polishing buffers the results were amazing.

One of the cool things about the swirl remover is the hands on application with a regular polishing cloth. It actually is the best polish you can use, absolutely no build up or slimy feel that most polishes will leave behind. Great stuff.

It did what was advertised.

I have a Pimentel classical guitar with very fine swirl marks. This product, applied by hand, using the medium, fine, and swirl remover, restored my guitar to a finish I am very proud to have done myself. Thank you Stewmac!
