Details

An easy way to make your frets shine! Fret Erasers™ are flexible self-padded rubber blocks embedded with abrasive grits.

They're incredibly handy—use them in sequence as a final step on freshly-crowned frets, to erase fine file marks and scratches. The grits are color-coded for convenience. Frets gleam, and play buttery-smooth.

"I used to wrap abrasive papers around small rubber blocks, but that got a little clumsy. Fret Erasers are simpler and faster. No more sandy grit or sharp steel wool particles."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Each Fret Eraser is 2-1/2" x 3/4" x 3/8" (63.50mm x 19.05mm x 9.52mm)

SAVE when you order the complete set of 5 grits.

Not very effective...

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I had high hopes for these erasers. Their effectiveness was not very good. I found better uses for them on de-burring nuts after filing, and smoothing out slots, etc....Seriously, don't get your hopes up on this product. Sandpaper and #0000 steel wool is FAR more effective!

The right specialist tools make all the difference!!!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


After using #0000 steel wool, painters tape, and polishing compound on my favorite of my 5 guitars, I knew there had to be an easier way. Stewmac had the solution. I purchased the yellow Extra fine fret eraser and my only disappointment was that I didn't order the entire set this month. I will order it next month. The eraser, even being extra fine, was able to give both cleaning, and polishing in one step. I cant wait to use this on a friends guitar later in the week. I can only say this. One of the best under $10 maintenance items you can have for your guitar. Do learn from my mistake, get the full set, and have them for your needs. Smooth frets make an already playable guitar that much more enjoyable. Great item!!!

Awesome little tool!

I work for Guitar Center repairs (for now) and these little guys are a life saver! Whether it's a new guitar we just got in with rough frets or after leveling and crowning frets, these will polish the frets back to a gleaming shine in no time at all! I've also found them useful for polishing fret boards too, if you've accidentally marred them while working on a guitar.

Reviving an abused Taylor

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought a 'new' Taylor that had obviously been hanging around music shops in Malaysia for 2 years. The strings were fragged and there were clear abrasion marks on the fretwork. No problem because I had a set of Fret Erasers from an earlier build - an hour of polishing and a new set of Elixirs brought this baby back to perfection.
I like these Erasers because they're tactile and you can feel the depth of abrasion whilst you work, they're not the only tool you will need but very, very useful.

Easy to use and effective

I currently have the coarse and fine fret erasers and they do a wonderful job! The coarse one does very well to finish a crowning and get rid of any unevenness. The fine eraser does great for a final, mirror like polish on my frets, but it is a big jump from the coarse eraser. I'll have to grab a medium fine to bridge the gap, but overall they're great!

Pretty Good

By

These fret erasers work pretty well. It takes some time and pressure to polish up frets nicely, and using different grits helps, but is tedious. Does not sand down frets that have recently been filed or worn out, but polishes smooth frets to a nice shine.

Good for your fretwork arsenal

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have found these to be very useful in doing fret dressing - much easier that using papers but I'm wondering how long the abrasive is going to hold up. We'll see since the abrasive particles are bound to eventually become dislodged from the rubber. That said, they have worked extremely well for me so far after a dozen or so fret jobs. If they stand the test of time I will give them 5 stars.

Good for some jobs

I bought the coarse eraser thinking it might be helpful for leveling some frets that were just a bit high. However it did little but was good for polishing the fret after I lowered it with my dressing stick.

Good Product, with Good results

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I order a set just to try these out to save from having to use sandpaper and steel wool. They work good, just not great. Maybe a video showing the best way to use these would help. Steel wool still has a better shine, see for yourself. Second fret is steel wool, first is fret erasers.

Pretty lame

Not that impressed with the fine grit, which was the only one I purchased. Seems gimmicky
