Solved My Les Paul Tuning Problems

I was about to put this guitar in the closet because the D and G would not stay in tune. I was going to get a set of nut files but was encouraged to try this first. I'm glad I did.

Difficult to smooth sides

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This product works well enough to smooth the bottom of whatever task is at hand but it is difficult to smooth the sides of any slot. A far better solution is to wrap a nut file or similar with the 3M Polishing Papers. The polishing papers are available in a greater range of graduations and are available in finer grits, too.

Perfect

The ideal way to avoid 'nut pinging' polish your slots with these gauged abrasives - perfect - used in all my books.

I couldn't find this or similar product here in Finland and can't figure out why. This is neat, clean, precise and long lasting product. I use it for everything I can fit it into. Highly recommended for everyone from guitar setups to anykind of woodworker

GREAT OPTION

I used this cord for the saddles and the nut on both Fender and Gibson models. A great option if you don't have special files.
