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.

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.

Pretty Good

By Erik H. from USA
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, June 04, 2014

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

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

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

I tried a fine grit and I think these are ridiculous. #0000 steel wool did a much better job, and left a shinier, smoother surface. Not crazy about steel wool, but it's better than these "erasers!"

No more hand cramps!

I use course, medium-fine and extra-fine. That's all I need to get the finish I like.

Everyone should have at least one of these! 

By Tony Ferrara from USA

I'm a player not a guitar tech but I recently received a new guitar that had a few minor buzzes. I ordered the green, #600 grit fret eraser and used it to "cleanup" the high spots and within a few minutes I had this guitar playing cleanly.

Everyone should have at least one medium fine fret eraser in their guitar maintenance tool kit.

Very handy

By unluthier from NC

I've mostly used them to polish frets that haven't been worked deeply, and they handle that very well. All you need is some elbow grease and a little patience.

Fret Erasers

Cheap and easy to use. You can do multiple frets at once by turning it sideways, and with a Medium and a Fine you can mirror polish any frets!
