About This Item

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 stainless steel with a durable finish for 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.

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.

Works good and is everything that it states it is.... but..... It is, again, much more expensive than it needs to be. I love Stewmac through and through... but Geeeeeez.. Lower your prices!!!

This works as expected, and 10 minutes after I got it, I found the frets that needed adjustments. Very helpful
