1. Shake bottle well
2. Apply a dime size amount of polish or cleaner for each 6″X6″ area to be cleaned
3. Rub firmly in a circular motion moving out from the center and then back towards the middle of area. Do not worry about pressure. Since there are no abrasives in Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner, and it is chemically programmed not to react with any type of varnish, shellac or lacquer, your finish will be safe.
4. Wipe excess polish and cleaner off and buff to a shine. Make sure you are using a clean cloth since Virtuoso Premium Cleaner is designed to attack waxes and other build ups. You may wind up with a slight haze if there is any other polish or cleaner residues on the cloth.
IMPORTANT: Use a clean cloth for each application.
A Word of Caution:
Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner are very effective. Your instrument will have a very high gloss shine which is desirable to most collectors, but we have had a few people say that the Virtuoso Premium Polish was to shiny for their personal taste. If you have any concerns about your instrument’s finish being too shiny, please test a small inconspicuous area first to see how you like the results. Virtuoso Premium Cleaner will clean your instrument without enhancing the finish’s natural luster if you prefer a low gloss appearance. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner are different than any polish or cleaners you may have used before. They are designed specifically for vintage guitar finishes because they require more care and attention than modern polyurethane finishes.
We do not recommend using our products on finishes that are checked as the products can seep into the cracks and near impossible to remove.
Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SATIN OR MATTE FINISHES
Please do not use our products on inexpensive foreign imports (i.e. Firefly) as they are constantly trying to become more cost-efficient at lower price points and may be using some kind of finish that is not polyester, polyurethane and certainly not nitrocellulose lacquer. Our products are designed to be used with those three finishes and we can’t be held responsible for any damage our products may cause to a finish that is not one of the three types mentioned above. If you are unsure what type of finish your guitar has, please don’t use our products on it.
Most manufacturers recommend using just a damp cloth to clean a satin or matte finish. Using Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner on a satin or matte finish are safe, however, the finish will become glossy which most people do not want. Once you use Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner on a satin or matte finish, you will not be able to reverse the glossy shine back too satin or matte finish.
We created a cleaner that will cut through years of build up… whether it is wax, sweat, spilled beer, etc… all without lifting or damaging the finish.
If your guitar is already clean, apply some Virtuoso Premium Polish to a small area and then hold up your guitar to the light to see how much deeper the luster is in the area that was treated. Virtuoso Premium Polish also provides a very high level of UV protection. This will keep your finish from fading any further than it already has. If you own a newer guitar, it will keep it from fading at all.
We recommend re-application once a month if your guitar is on a display under fluorescent lights or exposed to direct sunlight.
Our products are NOT RECOMMENDED for Fretboards or any part of the instrument that has an unfinished finish!
We hope you enjoy using Virtuoso Premium Polish and Cleaner for your special musical instruments.
