Details

Pinpoint those pesky high frets, and check the final height after you've redressed or replaced them, reach for the Fret Rocker!

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
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

A wonderful tool - Now what?

By

This is a great tool for looking for bad frets. I have four guitars, Strat, Gibson ES, an old Epiphone Genesis, and an acoustic Takamine. All of them were pretty good. My '76 Takimine had several frets that were high and low, mostly way down on the neck. Now I have to decide if I want to take the next step and dress them. I have a friend who has built many beautiful archtops, and I am probably going to go to him for some guidance. I would bring this tool if you are buying any guitar and want to know how much work it will need. It does it's job perfectly. Then you have to do the real job - repair what you uncovered.

Very useful

I use it mainly on checking how well frets are seating after being pressed in. The rocker shows any areas that still high are then I hammer them home with the fretting hammer making leveling jobs much easier.

I have found the fret rocker to be a very useful tool for pinpointing troublesome and illusive fret buzzing issues. Five edges in one, and the fit and finish are excellent - plus, it's heavy gauge stainless steel. Worth the price.
