Solved My Les Paul Tuning Problems

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.
