I purchased several sheets to finish off a neck finish with SparUrethane and a body painted with spray-can epoxy. I've only tried the 800, 1500, and 2000 but I agree with the description about the uniformity of the abrasive. The paper cut quite well when wet sanding (not surprisingly gums dry sanding with my finishes). It also produces a fine buff-able haze, without the type of unwanted scratching I see when I use the paper typically available at big-box home improvement stores.
The price isn't at all unreasonable either. Good paper is expensive. I think this is a bargain. With an existing sheet of 600 I had, I don't think I even got through a whole sheet of each grit on a 21" scale kids electric guitar. I probably spent more on paste polish.
I highly recommend it, I'll buy it again in the future.
I have used a game of these to polish three guitars, I think they will last five more
I purchased the Stew Mac micro finishing sheets (800-1500 grit) to complete a repair of a chip in my guitar neck. The results were great. The finished neck is smooth and feels great.
These are the best finishing papers I've ever used. They hold together well while wet sanding without a lot of build-up.
This paper is nearly indestructible compared to cheaper products. It did not tear nor plug up like other paper had for me during crucial projects. Rinse often when wet sanding and you shouldn't have any issues at all.
I have used the sames sheets on numerous finishes. I keep them clean and they work very well and bring out a mirror finish.
these are great for wet sanding. I bought two sheets of all three and still have 1 and 1/2 sheets left. They are very durable and will not tear on you.
You wouldn't think there would be much difference between sandpaper you get from a hardware store and any other sandpaper. You'd be wrong. The quality of these sandpapers is great! used several grits before switch to the micro mesh pads for a drop fill. Thanks again Stew Mac!
I had bought a used guitar from a seller on Ebay and was bothered by the used stamped into the headstock rear. I decided to inlay a Brown Pelican into the used stamp to cover it and needed finishing paper for the engraved portion of the wings. I also decided to make a Tor-tis pickguard from a sheet that had some flaws on it, and needed to smooth the surface. The micro paper preformed flawlessly for my needs and the job turned out great.
The Sandpaper was great (although I will not be ordering again as I did find the right stuff at Canadian Tire). As always it was delivered in a timely (just over a week) manner and everything was organized and great! Stewmac you don't disappoint! Thanks!
