The cushioning allows gentle polishing of finished surfaces to a mirror gloss. We use these regularly in our own shops for finish touch-ups and repairs.

The set of nine pads includes #1500, 1800, 2400, 3200, 3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, and 12000 grits. Use the grits in sequence to achieve a super gloss.

Micro-Mesh™ features tiny abrasive crystals on resilient cloth-backed latex. These gentle "cushioned" particles generate less heat and friction than ordinary finishing papers, don't load up as quickly, and last up to 15 times longer. Use Micro-Mesh with soapy water to produce a scratch-free mirror shine on finishes and pickguards. Great for repairing scratches and overspray. Use them for polishing frets, too.

Micro-Mesh was developed for polishing jet windshields to maintain their optical clarity. Imagine how your instrument will look!

Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Finishing Pads

I purchased 2 sets and they work great for cleaning up pick scratched. Easy to use and a very effective solution for various surfaces.

After using all the fret erasers then move to these wow... what a shine. Buy these. Forget the old sand paper and steel wool mess

Definitely a must

Got a set of these for a few different uses. They really did a great job in all of them. I used them for polishing up binding, finish, & frets, and they exceeded my expectations, especially at the very reasonable cost of a whole set.

Must have

Great for finishing and they start at a lower grit as opposed to other suppliers who start at 2400 grit. Price is right.

Great for polishing

I had just bought a used telecaster and the frets were worn some, so I leveled them and re-radiused them with a fret file and then used the fret erasers to smooth them up and completed the job with these polishing pads. They worked great as you can see in the picture.

Micro-Mesh Finishing Pads

Have tried many polishing methods on frets and this system is by far the best. Did a wonderful job on my SS frets!

based on buffing

why this isn't getting a 4 or 5 this isn't to say its a bad product and I hate to be negative but I'm no stranger to sanding but here's what I don't like about the product.

the color coding system inside the plastic you really have to use your imagination the colors aren't 100% like the pads, perhaps writing them on the sides or individually packaging them maybe if not a thin sticker that would peel off them but that may clog the abrasives, but some of those ideas would make the product more expensive perhaps.

I'll find some other uses for this and probably just use these on hard to reach places but this isn't "endgame" for me I'll still buy waxes, polishes..ect. Good luck to anyone else interested in this product I used every grit three times up and than down making sure one grit got rid of the previous grits scratches without missing a single grit and im not happy with the results I'm sure some may have the patience , willpower or whatever you want to consider it for this messy process but I don't knowing I can blast my buffer on and in minutes i'll do what the half hour or so my micromesh couldn't.

Great stuff!

First I masked off the outer area with painters tape (don't use tape on vintage guitars) then I soaked the pads in water with a little suds of Dawn. Starting with the more coarse (only a few strokes) and to the nest finer (less course) pad until all pads were used. It took less than 5 minutes in all. The first time I was not that impressed but I did the exact same thing the next day and MAN, IT LOOKS GREAT!

Excellent Finishing Pads

These pads are so useful, they have a multitude of uses they are excellent for cleaning fret boards, finishing small touch ups between coats, polishing frets off and the polishing of any metals. One of the best uses I have found is removing marks from finished area’s of the guitar i.e. The forearm comfort camber on a strat, I had a dark mark that nothing would shift on the camber, but these pads moved it. The most recent job I used them for was on my 1973 strat, to polish the frets after removing some marks and re-crowning them, these pads are the bee’s knee’s, don’t know how I managed without them and to top it all they are very good value fort money.
