good deal ..

By

Verified Buyer


looked all around after seeing these here and found this was the best deal ... have been able to safely lower the action on an already well cut nut without too much trouble ... as always, they should work on lowering their shipping costs

Fixed my issue

By

Verified Buyer


I had a G string “hanging up “ at the nut on one of my acoustic guitars. Nick at Stew Mac recommended this string abrasive to lightly smooth and enlarge the nuts slot (versus the equivalent file). It worked . I can’t say enough good about Stew Mac staff. I have contacted them with issues over the years and they always respond quickly with good suggestions.

Perfect Tool

Really great tool.
Perfectly work on saddles and nuts.
BUT!
Need more sizes. Critically need more different sizes.

Perfect! Goes where sandpaper can’t!

By

I use this when installing under saddle pickups or adding a working space between cavities. Works like a charm and gets rid of rough edges that can cause chaffing of wires.

These work well and you need them if you are putting slots in saddles

By

Verified Buyer


These work well and you need them if you are putting slots in saddles.

One objection:
Wildly expensive for a piece of string with grit.

But you need them or your slots will suck.

a must have for nut slotting

Verified Buyer


my only complaint is "hey SM please add more sizes!"
cleans and polishes slots better than anything else.

abrasive ... abrasive cord

The cord is exactly what it says it is. I'm sure it will come in handy. One note though - don't be fooled by the image of a spool with lots of cord on it. The smaller cord looks like there is hardly any cord on the spool at all. I'm sure there is the length StewMac says there is on the spool, but don't be surprised at how little there is on the spool.
