Sanding Stew-mac Fretboard

I would start at 320 or 400 and work up to at least 1000. A real shine needs more like 2000 grit (but work your way up to it, of course).

I personally would start at 220 and go to 2000 the polish with fine and extra compound and buff wheels. thats how I do all mine.

But you can't do this unless you have the 12" radius block. if you free hand it you will lose your radius.

only up to a certain point, tho. Above 1000 I switch to little micromesh pads and just use fingers - they're not taking off any significant material so they can't spoil the radius.
