So who uses it? Does it do a good job of polishing out surface scratches, such as from pick marks and polishing swirls?

Try this:

Yeah, seriously. Search here for discussion about it.

Works very well, costs about 1/4 as much as supposedly-specialized guitar waxes. In fact, Zymol makes one of those costs-four-times-as-much guitar polishes... nearly-molecularly-identical, you'd never see the difference on your guitar.

Works amazing but I could only find it on Amazon for 20 bucks USD plus S/H

I use Virtuoso Cleaner and Virtuoso Polish on all my guitars. Highly recommended! I used the cleaner and the polish to de-VOS my 2013 R9. You can see what's possible here in this thread.

Even if it is priced a little high, a bottle will last you several years. This isn't the place to look at saving a few bucks.

They sell Virtuoso in Guitar Center for about $10 a bottle.

I use it. Works very well. The cleaner is good at getting the cloudiness out of the lacquer from sweat.

I use Meguiar's polish and swirl remover and their NXT wax on my poly guitars and it does great just like on my black Vette. On my nitro Gibson I use their own polish. I did use the NXT once but I know everyone cringes at doing this so I just use the Gibson stuff but wouldn't mind trying out the Virtuoso. Or you could just use spit and a clean rag like that guy Scott on YouTube recommends. :applause:

I use Naphtha if really a lot of build up, if not I use the Virtuoso cleaner, however, I do NOT use the Virtuoso polish. I do not like the paste type wax residue it leaves an can never get buffed out good. I instead use Gibson Pump Polish and have the best results with it.

I've used Virtuoso cleaner and polish on my Les Pauls. No better than Zymöl. In fact I rate Zymöl superior to Virtuoso...

I've seen it in the local GC, but never on their website.

I usually just get mine from Amazon… for $25, you get about a 3 year supply - even if you clean & polish 3-4X/year. So what, if it costs and extra $5? It shows up on my doorstep in 2 days. And, I don't have to deal with the hassle of checking out at Guitarget. Or, risk buying something else that I don't need :)

Not only did the color seem to change change, the polish removed that pesky pick guard too?
