I'm finishing the neck shaping on my first guitar...an SG. I've sanded through 220 grit with a 12" radius caul. I cannot seem to avoid having the mother of pearl dust embedding itself in the fret board. I've attached an image. I doubt this will go away as I sand to higher grits. Does it become less visible once the finish is applied. I've vacuumed the dust and followed up with a tack cloth between each grit. Not sure what else I could do. Any suggestions?
