Incredible Utility

By

As a first time user, I wasn't sure what to expect. Will the cord hold strong under vigorous applications? Will the abrasive particles hold-up for a reasonable time before losing effectiveness? etc... Well, I must say I'm very pleased overall! The cord strength is impressive under tension and friction. The sanding effectiveness is sufficient for most guitar repair and mod jobs. The rough sanding particles wear-out fairly quickly in my opinion though, however leaving behind a finer polishing grit that works well for finishing up a particular job and leaving a softer, less friction prone surface. How 'bout that?!
For the record, I have so far used the various gauge cords to clean-up string slots on my acoustic guitar nut, polish my Strat's bridge saddles at contact point, shape and finish angled bevels I drilled into the Strat bridge plate to eliminate the sharp contact points where strings make contact with the plate after exiting the bridge block.
I'm hoping now that the cords will serve me well in re-cutting and reforming the pre-cut bone nut for the Strat I ordered from Stewmac, which surprisingly turned-out to be the wrong size in every dimension!
Anywho, I definitely recommend these little stringy guys for all DIY'ers and guitar tinkering fanatics out there!

I ordered this to add a small ramp to my string through uke bridges which have a 1/16" hole.
It works well and should last a while.

After using the .030" cord, I came back and cleaned up the look of the (tiny) ramps with a small tapered file which gave it a final clean look.

I can see me using this in a few other areas of the built to.

I've looked at these for quite some time. Now that I tried them I wish I had bought them the first time I saw them. These are really nice for that special area, and the sizes are pretty close for most work.

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.
