Outstanding!

Makes life a lot easier and takes the frustration out of smoothing slots. Can't imagine how anyone would break these, they are like any abrasive type tool, let it do the work for you and don't force it.

When using their nut files for the smaller strings I kept getting a ping sound from a burr I just couldn't get rid of in the nut. This abrasive cord does an excellent job of cleaning out the slots. Highly recommended when slotting a bridge too.

Really great item, smooths out nut and saddle slots, with little to no pressure, so the strings can ride over the surface smoothly. Follow with some guitar grease to eliminate those pesky tuning hiccups

There is nothing better to finish the polishing of nut slots in the world... Just enough grit to slowing bring the slot to perfection..

This is the best for smoothing nut slots! I read that some other reviewers have had problems with the cord breaking... The trick is to let the cord do the work for you. There is no need to put too much tension on the cord for it to do it's job!

Great - for different reasons

Like others, I find these pretty useless for polishing nuts and saddle slots, but as I'm a fan of really heavy strings (.070"-.080" on the 6th), I'm often finding that the string holes in tuner posts are just a TOUCH too small. These are the perfect way to open them up a bit, and keep them polished and perfect.

Useful for a few seconds, it breaks very quickly.
