Details

Our Fret Slotting Saw has a rigid brass spine, and a comfortable traditionally-turned hardwood handle with ferrule. It looks right at home on a luthier's workbench.

Sheffield steel blade.
Make no mistake: this is NOT a standard hardware megamart backsaw! We started with a blade of legendary corrosion-resistant Sheffield steel, and specified .023" width to match our fretwire. We insisted on precision pull-cut teeth, to greatly reduce blade flex and jamming in harder fingerboard woods. Lastly, we designed an easy to use, removable clear acrylic depth stop. It slides up or down, with thumbscrews to precisely set any fret slot depth.

And one more thing: this saw works seamlessly with our Fret Slotting Miter Box.

The acrylic depth guide can be adjusted to expose as much as 1/4" of the blade, and is removable for cutting off the ends of a blank fingerboard. It's also sold separately.

Overall length 15-1/4" (387.35mm)
Cutting length 10" (254mm)
Blade depth 1-3/4" (44.45mm)

Cut accurate 90-degree slots when you use the saw with our Fret Slotting Miter Box. Add a Fret Scale Template and you'll never miscalculate your fret positions.

The saw

By Al Pryor from Berryville, Arkansas, USA
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, December 03, 2010


I bought the set and wish I had bought the Japanese saw, as the one I got is so dull it will barely cut pine. I would not recommend the saw that comes with the set.

Its great

I bought this for a couple of my projects and has worked great except one problem is the screws on the depth stop keep coming loose so i just put some plumbing tap on it and has worked great





a definite buy!

Great for a small shop

I do a small number of fretboards from scratch. This tool works so nicely. Don't try to cut your fret slots without a product like this.

Should have got it sooner

I spent way more time improvising than in doing it right with this saw and miter box. It saves time and money and makes a much better fretboard.

Great Tool!

I should have bought the Japanese saw. Miter box and template works perfectly though.

You have to have this saw

This saw is very nice because allows you to have uniform cuts on the fretboard and the blade procudes a perfect cut: clean cut and perfect width. Highly recommended
