Extra-gentle hand polishing for high-gloss finishes. Fingertip-size foam pads with the remarkable Micro-Mesh™ abrasives on both sides.

The cushioning allows gentle polishing of finished surfaces to a mirror gloss. We use these regularly in our own shops for finish touch-ups and repairs.

The set of nine pads includes #1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, and 12000 grits. Use the grits in sequence to achieve a super gloss.

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!

I purchased 2 sets and they work great for cleaning up pick scratched. Easy to use and a very effective solution for various surfaces.

After using all the fret erasers then move to these wow... what a shine. Buy these. Forget the old sand paper and steel wool mess

These pads make your frets look like jewelry.

Definitely a must

Got a set of these for a few different uses. They really did a great job in all of them. I used them for polishing up binding, finish, & frets, and they exceeded my expectations, especially at the very reasonable cost of a whole set.

Must have

Great for finishing and they start at a lower grit as opposed to other suppliers who start at 2400 grit. Price is right.

Great for polishing

I had just bought a used telecaster and the frets were worn some, so I leveled them and re-radiused them with a fret file and then used the fret erasers to smooth them up and completed the job with these polishing pads. They worked great as you can see in the picture.

Micro-Mesh Finishing Pads

Have tried many polishing methods on frets and this system is by far the best. Did a wonderful job on my SS frets!

Excellent Finishing Pads

By M Dawes from South Shields, England
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, March 11, 2012

These pads are so useful, they have a multitude of uses they are excellent for cleaning fret boards, finishing small touch ups between coats, polishing frets off and the polishing of any metals. One of the best uses I have found is removing marks from finished areaÆs of the guitar i.e. The forearm comfort camber on a strat, I had a dark mark that nothing would shift on the camber, but these pads moved it. The most recent job I used them for was on my 1973 strat, to polish the frets after removing some marks and re-crowning them, these pads are the beeÆs kneeÆs, donÆt know how I managed without them and to top it all they are very good value fort money.

Neat product

I have been using Micro-Mesh papers for a lot of years now. These are handy as all get out for small repairs and working around the tight curves. Definitely worth the money for the time savings.

Excellent for finish work

By Ryan N. from Missouri

These pads are the perfect size for finishing the small areas on your guitar. They also easily conform to curves and are almost indestructible.
