Miracle sandpaper

When I arrived at the phase of scuffing and sanding the orange rind texture in the clear gloss nitro finish over the body of my Telecaster, I was afraid if it would go down at all with any sanding. That was until I read about the micro finishing papers in the Stewmac literature. From that point, I ordered all the grits from 800 to 2000 and then set to work after they all gradually arrived in the mail. The cost of each piece of paper was fair and worth the work and result as well! As I kept working with each grit upon the finish, I was happy to see that the papers could cut through the finish well and gradually close up the rounded bubble texture and bring it down to a nice, final smooth and clear coat. Impressive and amazing paper! Worth the investment. Thank you for everything, Stewmac, you've been a great help with this project as a novice guitar body refinisher!

Controllable finishing work

Just like every other Stew Mac product, it does the job, and saves me time which I use to attend to those little details to make the service even better.

Works as advertised

works as advertised or better. These papers really cut into the work surface but do so without leaving nasty scratch marks. I now call these indispensable.

Great grits.

There is a difference in sand papers and this stuff is the bomb! It gets you to a place where you can do a final polish and swirl remover followed by a good guitar polish and magic happens.This project was a replacement of the entire back of a
Fender F5/12 on a budget. I think it turned out well.

Micro Finishing Papers

I love the StewMac micro finishing papers. They sand nice and even with minimal clogging. I sand up to 2000 then buff. I use them for fret polishing too. I used them on this 60s Airline restoration.

Good stuff

This is so much better than I expected. A small piece lasts a long time without clogging. As it wears I use it for even finer polishing, so I really do feel that I got more than my moneys worth with this paper.

Better than what you buy at auto part stores.

The abrasive particles in the paper are better distributed and uniform and has a better looking result than what you would buy at an auto part store. Great product!!!
