Cushioned for a scratch-free mirror finish. Three Micro-Mesh™ abrasives in one handy tool, about the size of a pencil.

Perfect for small touch-ups on glossy finishes, the Touch-up Stick is padded so it flexes and conforms gently to the work. We rely on these in our own shops for finish touch-ups and repairs.

The stick includes three Micro-Mesh grits on a padded core (5-3/4" x 1/2" size): 2400, 4000 and 12000-grit.

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. Great for repairing scratches and overspray. Use them for polishing frets, too.

Micro-Mesh was developed for polishing jet windshields to maintain their optical clarity. Imagine how your instrument will look!

Essential fretting tool

By Garon from Los Angeles
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, April 12, 2014

These things are simply amazing. After crowning my frets with a diamond file, I'll go over them with 0000 steel wool, then polish them up with one of these. I can get a full fret job/polish out of one stick. A little trick I found was when they start getting dirty, just snip half an inch off the tip and keep going. They're cheap too, so buy a few next time you place an orderûyou won't regret it. I can see myself ordering a handful every time I need some new tools. I haven't used them for finish touch ups yet, but they're worth their weight in gold for fretting purposes. They're also great for polishing your nails if you play fingerstyle!

an important tool

These polishing boards really do the trick. Far safer and easier than fine steel wool. The very fine "grit" is especially useful. Use it and your string bending will be effortless!

Got these to try at a time when I was near broke, 'cause their pretty cheap. I've used them a lot when buying and repairing broken guitars. These things work great for me in removing the beginnings of fret corrosion, and the finest side polishes off frets really well. A good friend recently started playing guitar again and asked me to set up his 80s Telecaster. It was an easy setup but the dull looking frets really bothered me on this otherwise fantastic guitar. I polished the frets with one of these touch up sticks, and he was excited at the difference from the cloudy look of the frets before, to the shiny, polished look of the frets when he got his guitar back. I've used them to sand light work needed on plastic pickup rings to frets. One of those items I keep finding other things to use the sticks for than what I originally wanted them for.

Just another fine time saver

These could do up my fingernails nicely, but prefer to use them for their intended purpose, produce a fine finish quickly.

Great for frets!

I use these to polish frets and love the results. Makes them shine like mirrors!

I will keep a bundle of these at my shop! Easy to work with, and I need only polish up the surface by hand after using one of these. They doesn't last long at all, but considering the price, I think I'm cool with that ;) GitFix

Handy tool

This is a great tool for working around the fingerboard and frets. Only problem is they wear out quickly so buy a bunch at a time.

A nice surprise!!

Good for fret touch-up

Please do not use this product on a high gloss finish. It will just create more work for you. It works very well on frets.

Easy to use

By Illdoyouforthat from Warwick, RI
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, June 13, 2012

As the title says, very easy to use. Gets dirty rather quickly but works well. Just keep your girlfriend away from them, they would work well on her fingernails as well..
