Because they conform to any surface shape, they're great for polishing contoured guitar finishes, frets, plastic pickguards, pearl inlays and more. The first samples we received were jealously hoarded in our shops, quickly becoming favorites for polishing nuts and saddles, and for touchups in lacquer finishes.

Sold individually or SAVE $1.00 when you purchase the set of all six grits.

"Indispensable for polishing bone and pearl nuts. They leave a gorgeous luster with no dark residue in porous bone."
—Don MacRostie, Red Diamond Mandolins

Each sheet is coated on one side with micron-graded particles of aluminum oxide (1200-8000 grit) or silicon carbide (400-600 grit), on an extremely flexible non-woven .007" synthetic backing.

The pattern coating won't clog quickly. They leave no dark residue in porous bone nuts and saddles. The durable tear-resistant sheet washes easily in water.

Each sheet is a generous 9" x 11" (228.6mm x 279.4mm).

"The most versatile abrasive in my shop."
—Erick Coleman

"Lasts a long time, and so flexible you can buff shoeshine-style!"
—Dan Erlewine

The perfect fret polishing & nut polishing paper!

I must say, when the fret erasers came out, I thought those were pretty neat but they can't compare to what this 3M product can do! Hands down, i'm much happier with how my frets polished up with these papers. They also serve well for polishing up a string nut. Order yours today! Cellini Custom Guitars

Great product, absolutely necessary!

I love the micro mesh pads and these flexible polishing papers. They are absolutely indispensable when working on frets, nuts, bridges, or anything where a nice smooth finish is concerned. I've done more drop fills, finish repairs, ding repairs, fret and nut polishing using these things it's ridiculous. These fit in any spot and are fantastic.

These are a must-have. I use them for buffing bone nuts to a high gloss, and they are great for shining up fret ends too.

I use these for lacquer finishes. The softness of these papers prevents damage and allows for smooth work. Great finish. From here buffing to a high gloss is a snap if that's where you're going.

Works good, lasts a long time

I do french polished shellac, and this works well with shellac, brushes off or washes off well. I'm amazed at how long this stuff lasts. I only use the 3 coarsest colors, the others are too fine for my work.

Great papers, they seem to last forever! I used these to get a mirror shine on a French Polished guitar. A must have finishing product.
