Precision abrasives make the difference! This special package of 22 sheets will win you over to the benefits of precision-graded papers!

Typical hardware-store sandpaper contains irregular grit particles, causing scratches and slowing your work. Gold Fre-Cut and micro finishing papers have precisely uniform abrasives, are fast-cutting, and leave the smooth, scratch-free surface that professionals demand.

Sampler package includes:

3M Gold Fre-Cut Sandpaper
Two 9" x 11" sheets of each grit:
150, 220, 320, 400, 600, 800
Micro finishing paper
Two 9" x 5-1/2" sheets of each grit:
800, 1000, 1200, 1500, and 2000

These papers are graded on the "P-scale," indicating a truly uniform cutting surface (read about abrasive grading scales in our Finishing Step-by-Step book). This selection of 22 sheets will stock your shop with every grit you need for professional finishing.

3M Gold Fre-Cut Sandpapers are luthiers' favorite papers for dry sanding. The premium aluminum oxide abrasive cuts fast and resists clogging, for better efficiency. Treated to help prevent "fisheyes" (cratering) in waterbase finishes. These papers last longer—we use them in our own shops.
Individual sheets also available.

Micro finishing papers are abrasives for water-sanding scratch-free finishes. Grit particles are uniform in size, virtually eliminating sanding scratches. Perfect for modern polyester finishes or traditional lacquered surfaces.
Individual sheets also available.

After sanding, use ColorTone Polishing Compounds to complete the high gloss.

Huge difference from sandpaper you buy at the big box stores. Allows you to create a finish to be proud of.

Works great

It's hard to get excited about sandpaper. If your not doing a lot of finishing I think this is the way to go. You get 150-2000 grit and as stated before these papers do not load up quickly so you get a lot of mileage out of them.

The Best sandpaper around

I bought this sandpaper for a epiphone Les Paul 100 project. It's phenomenal to work with a quick slap of the sandpaper and the build up comes right off. It last a lot longer than those hardware store sandpapers. Buy your self a pack if you are refinishing a guitar or some kind of other instrument you will not be disappointed with it's performance

Excellent quality. I used the gold paper the most and you can't beat it. The grits of micro papers I used did very well also.

Great Stuff

One of the best attributes was that they didn't load up like standard papers and were easy to clean off.

Perfect for my sanding & finishing needs. The variety of papers gives you all the choices you need. I went through one set and ordered another right away, and will continue to do so.

These papers are great! I found use for the grits 150 thru 600 on a guitar project I was working on recently.They were wonderful to use.I didn't have to use the wet sanding papers because I finished my guitar in tung oil so I can't comment on them. but the dry sanding papers are super in my book and the sampler represents a real value.Thanks Stew Mac!
