Our 4-in-1 mini straightedge spans three frets and "rocks" to indicate uneven fret heights. Precision-machined for accuracy to .0015" per foot, the 4", 3", 2" and 1-5/16" edges make it versatile for any fretted instrument, from basses to guitars to mandolins.

The Fret Rocker is made of 1/8" nickel-plated steel with a satin finish, for durability in professional use. It's an indispensable diagnostic tool, before and after partial refretting and recrowning jobs. It lets you do more accurate fret work for better playability.

Essential for fretting
The Fret Rocker is one of seven tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Kit, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. Kit also includes our book, Fretwork Step By Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

Even for bass !

This tool is as simple as accurate .
Even for a 36.5" bass in the first scales of the neck that are really wide .

Magnificent and not expensive tool!

I replaced frets for the first time and thanks to this tool my work much more was facilitated! In the future I constantly will work only as this tool.

Fret Rocker

Very useful tool, I use it all the time while pressing frets with 'Jaws'to adjust the level as far as possible as I go along. Then I check the whole fingerboard prior to leveling.

1 vs. 4

I have been using 4 different length strait edges to check for high frets. The Rocker also saves some time. All you have to do is rotate it for the next correct length. Another perfect tool for fret work.

It Rocks, Literally.

An excellent addition to my refretting tool arsenal. Couldn't perform an accurate refret without it.

All guitar techs need this!

At first a little skeptical due to its $20 price tag, but after 1 use it's paid for itself. A fast way of finding those rouge frets causing you all the headaches.
