These are the basic tools you'll need for installing, leveling, crowning and inspecting frets.

And to give you the best possible head start, we include Fret Work Step-By-Step book. It's the most complete book ever published on the subject, with techniques, tips, tools and tricks.

The Essential Fretting Set features the same tools we supply to professional repair shops—good tools that give you the confidence to do good work. They'll help prepare you for more specialized jobs and tools later as your skills develop.

Fret Cutter
Deadblow Fretting Hammer
Fret Leveling File, 6"
Double-edge Fret File, medium/wide
Fret End Dressing File
Micro-Mesh Fret Dressing Stick with 14 belts
Fret Rocker
Fret Work Step-By-Step, 2nd edition

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers and Fret Cutters. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

Arrived very quickly. Quality of each item is top notch. The accompanying book was easy to understand and packed with information for a novice like me. I performed my first fret job on my favorite electric and it turned out well. This is a good investment for anyone looking to start doing fretwork on their own. I have a couple more instruments that need fretwork so this kit will quickly pay for itself.
