Fret Rocker

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.

Fret Rocker

Thank you for the Fret Rocker. It arrived in Croatia in less time than you suggested, and on my set ups I'm already checking all my guitar' frets with this great tool! The Fret Rocker helps me maintain a fret buzz free`guitars with a lower action, and using it, I find that even new instruments suffer with a "raised Fret" or two, and the "Fret Rocker" is the tool that will find the offending high fret that you can simply "Tap" or "Smooth" down. Great invention! I sincerely thank your staff for the quick service you provided!

HEAVY USE

We use the Fret Rocker so much in my shop, we may actually be the first to wear one out! If you don't have the means to measure fret height accurately through all phases of doing fret work, you simply cannot do an accurate job. We find the Fret Rocker is fast and easy to use and it's relatively inexpensive. It's a GREAT tool to include in your tool box!

An Indispensable Tool 

By

I purchased this fret rocker to replace an old similar tool that I have had for many years, unfortunately the older tool was only made of aluminium and had extensive wear to all the edges. I purchased this tool many years ago from Italy and over the years I have had the edges ground up on numerous occasions, but really this tool was well past itÆs sell by date, hence the purchase of this tool. The quality of which, is what you have come to expect from Stewmac, it is top notch and as it is made from stainless steel and I will not have the same wearing problems than I did with the previous original tool, another first class product from Stewmac.

Want a good setup or not?

Get one. I've leveled frets with every sophisticated technique out there and still can find renegade high spots within a single fret with this. If you're not too lazy to use it (checking each fret across the entire fret, not just down the middle), you will achieve setups that are as good as it can get and are otherwise impossible.

Don't use them often but when you need them they make it so easy to find the bad fret!
