Cushioned for a scratch-free mirror finish. Micro-Mesh™ features tiny abrasive crystals on resilient cloth-backed latex.

These gentle "cushioned" particles generate less heat and friction than ordinary finishing papers, don't load up as quickly, and last up to 15 times longer. Use Micro-Mesh with soapy water to produce a scratch-free mirror shine on finishes and pickguards.

The kit includes:
18 Micro-Mesh abrasive sheets (two 3" x 6" pieces of each grit):
1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000 and 12000-grit
Foam sanding block

Micro-Mesh was developed for polishing jet windshields to maintain their optical clarity. Imagine how your instrument will look! Great for repairing scratches and overspray. Use them for polishing frets, too.

Awesome stuff

By Vito Tuxedo from California

I originally found out about Micro-Mesh in connection with work on my fountain pen nibs. I bought a set of pads (4,000, 6,000, 8,000, and 12,000) to shape a polish the nibs into an ultra-smooth jeweler's finish. Then recently I bought a Stratocaster whose frets were...well, let's just say that "factory finish" is not a good thing. I'm used to the frets on my '63 L-Strat, which are smooth as greased glass. So, I figured that if Micro-Mesh works on iridium pen nibs, it ought to to a great job on fret wire. It does. I applied all four grades successively, from 4,000 up to 12,000, and now the frets are buttery smooth. But wait! Do you have pick scratches on your finish? Micro-Mesh will buff those puppies outta there and restore the finish to brand new. (Use caution: The finer the scratches, the finer the grit you should use.) Micro-Mesh is great stuff!

These things are wonderful!

I used these in conjunction with the polishing papers for a final rubbing of a french polish project I was working on, and they delivered in spades. Love them!

Not bad....

Cuts really fast but you have to be really careful with it or else you'll scratch up your finish. I find the polishing cloth a little easier to manage. For flat surfaces make sure you use the included foam block so that it'll cut consistently

Impressive Results

I'm quite surprised at how well these abrasives work. I'm able to get an almost perfect finish just using the full suite of grits. Scratch-free is pretty difficult, though. Any minor debris on your surface or in your lubricant will show as scratches when you get to the highest grits. So you have to be extremely careful not to have any contamination. Buffing should take care of them, though. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is the price.

Works great for fret polishing and for getting some great high gloss shine finishes..

Excellent for fretwork

Yes, they're expensive. But, they are the best product for polishing frets. After leveling, we crown with the StewMac diamond crowning file, and then we start with the coarsest grit of Micro-Mesh and work our way up to 12000. It does an excellent job of smoothing & polishing the frets.

Fast and Smooth!

i bought mine a while back for 45 dollars...i mean its good stuff and you can use it for almost any polishing job but now i wish i had chosen a couple foam pads and some polishing compounds. Dont get me wrong. Im very satisfied but i only used them for a couple projects

Great results!
