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!

My go to abrasive

By Steve Rigsby from Morehead KY
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, January 12, 2011

I use these for just about everything in the shop. I use then to feather in the edge of touch ups, removing light scratches, knock down the shine, on repairs of vintage guitars, matching new hardware to old you can use them in the middle ranges to take the shine off a satin finish that is worn slick. Pretty handy stuff. I find new things to use them for every day, just having that wide a range of grits in one place, is the secret of this little jewel.

Finishing Pads

Fantastic touch-up abrasives! Adding a bit of silver polish from Mom's cabinet, and a touch of polish (shoe polish works well), and the scratch never happened! An impressive item, worth ten times the cost, for what it can do for a damaged guitar.

Very good product. The colors for identifying one from another are sometimes a little similar. The pads are very useful and leave a very nice finish.

De-clouder of "cloudy" finishes on vintage inst.

I bought the set of Micro-Mesh finishing pads to try to take out a hair line scratch on an es-125 I recently purchased. It worked so well that I sanded the whole guitar starting with the middle of the " pack " and finishing with the finest grit. Incredible!! It not only took out the scratch but lifted the old dirty sheen that I couldn't remove no matter what. It not only will remove fine scratches, with a little elbow grease, but restored the beautiful luster and shine to this 45 yr. old relic. Fantastic! Will need another set for the rest of my collection. Outstanding product from an outstanding supplier.

Another shop necessity!

Clearly the pads have uses for finish and etc. I've used them for years on fingerboard frets. Great for rounding, cleaning, and that great fret shine.

Excellent, but

An excellent product that works like magic. But, the last ones purchased were slightly different and when soaked in water the abrasive panels lifted from the foam core and were floating in the pan of water. :(.
