Virtuoso Premium Guitar Instrument Polish
Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner are two superior musical instrument care products that were especially developed for vintage guitars and other musical instruments. Vintage instruments with nitrocellulose lacquer finishes require more care and attention than modern polyurethane finishes that are being produced today. The polish and cleaner are different than any other polish or cleaner that you may have used with your musical instruments in the past.
Virtuoso Premium Cleaner was created to cut through years of build up whether it is wax, sweat, spilled beverages or cigarette smoke.
If your musical instrument is already clean, we suggest you use Virtuoso Premium Polish. In addition to offering your instrument a high luster and fingerprint resistant finish, the Virtuoso Premium Polish also provides a very high degree of UV protection.
Both the Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner use a chemical reaction to break down residues. We do not use abrasives, which can harm the original finish of your instruments.
Virtuoso ingredients are unlike the ingredients used in other musical instrument care products on the market today. Most musical instrument polishes you buy are using carnuba wax to achieve the shine on your instrument. Carnuba wax has no inherent cleaning capabilities. You are removing fingerprints and dust more from the friction of rubbing the polish in than any cleaning function of the product. Another downside of carnuba wax is that it builds up on your finish.
As the years go by, the chemicals in your sweat react with them and you wind up with a hazy finish in the area where your skin comes into contact with your musical instrument. This is readily apparent in the lower bass bout of most vintage instruments, especially in ones with dark finishes. How many black Les Pauls and sunburst acoustics have you seen with a hazy half moon where your arm rests? Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner are different. Virtuoso Premium Cleaner is designed to attack any organic based substance found on your finish and remove it. Virtuoso Premium Polish does the same thing, although it's cleaning properties are not as strong as Virtuoso Premium Cleaner.
Virtuoso Premium Polish is more of a protection product. During an application the polish seals your finish with a strong glaze that helps slow down the oxidation of your finish and protect the colour of the wood or the pigment in the painted or stained finish with an inherent UV filter. This will help your musical instrument look new longer or help keep your vintage musical instrument from fading. This glaze is also fingerprint resistant, allowing you to go weeks or months without another application. Simply get a clean cloth and wipe your instrument to restore the brilliant luster.
