Fret Cutter

Spend less time filing fret ends!
This is the best tool for trimming the ends off fretwire.

A Stewart-MacDonald exclusive, our custom-made steel cutter has improved features you won't find on hardware store nippers.

The jaws are specially hardened for fret work, and they're profiled and flush-ground to cut the wire close to the fretboard. The result is a cleaner cut without pulling the wire, so you'll need to do less filing. Longer rubber-coated handles allow better access to the frets over a guitar body.

1" (25.4mm) jaw width, 8" (203.20mm) length.

Not recommended for use with stainless-steel fretwire.

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.

I've had my fret cutter for at least 8 years now and I like everyone else here loves this tool, but beware - if you try to cut that cool looking gold fretwire - you'll chip your cutter. I almost cried...

Very neat cuts are easily obtained, making fretting that little bit quicker. Plus the longer handles mean less effort!

These save me on fret wire costs as they cut cleanly and without ripping the fret from the fretboard.
