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.

These are really great

By

Verified Buyer


I wanted to sand a new bone nut to be flush and smooth to the guitar neck. These compounds worked great, and I was able to remove the 800 grit sanding marks, and the nut and neck are smooth and polished with just hand rubbing and a microfiber towel. Great product.

Works well

The liquid compound works far better than the paste since I don’t have a wheel in my shop. Just wish there were larger size bottles available.

Buffing Compund

By

Verified Buyer


If you are hand buffing, the coarse grade buffing compound a must. It will take care of 90% of your scratch issues, provided you've gone through the necessary sanding grits. I do use the medium, but the coarse is my go-to and does almost anything I need. It is also very efficient as far as quantity.

Fantastic!

I bought the Stew-Mac compounds to use on my Gibson SG, only a year old and had a big finish flaw from the body expanding then contracting. Worked excellent! I had thought of selling the guitar before I used the products, not anymore

The answer to a question no-one asked.

Try as I may, these compounds simply do not work. I tried every trick and followed the directions to the letter, and they are completely worthless. They are a huge step down from the former paste compounds.

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.
