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.

Fret Erasers

By KL from Christchurch, New Zealand

An ok product. You need to make sure the frets are smoothly filed first as the material removal rate is very fine. The make a nice polish and are not a risk for an accident like other products could be.

Fairly time consuming but in combination with the Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Finishing Pads it creates a mirror finish. Using both products I was happy with the results. The Fret Erasers are definitely going to last a very long time.

Work just fine

I bought these to polish up the frett work I did
my SX bass.
Did the job well. Easier on the fingers, and the rubber allows them to mold around the frett shape.

Good but not great

These erasers work as advertised but, as stated before, WILL NOT give you a mirror shine. I was able to remove chatter/file marks with the #180 (blue) but for final polish this kit seriously needs a #1500. Add in a #300 to make a 7-peice set and I'd give them the 5th star.

Fret Eraser = Cool!

By John R. Frondelli from New York, NY

I'm always lloking for easier, simpler ways to do things, but ONLY if the results are equal to or BETTER than my normal approach. I first tried the Fret Erasers about a month ago on a '76 Strat refret, forgoing the traditional progressive sandpaper grits after leveling and crowning. They are easy to handle, conform to the shape of the frets, and the color-coding makes them easy to select on the bench. Most of all, the results are spectacular. I HIGHLY recommend these.

Fret Erasers

I used this set to smooth some Tele frets that appeared to have a crack in them. They were deep enough to hang a fingernail or snag a string while bending. These erasers did a good job for me. The frets were as smooth as factory. No snags. I can recommend them.

over rated

By Joes Guitar from Edmonton
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I suspected it may be hype, but ordered the full set. Well after using all 5 in order on frets on 3 gtr - then I still needed to use the steel wool. Sure many guys hate steel wool in their shop, but since these erasers have rubber in them you use a lot of pressure to even get them to work at all. And then after your hands are tired, you get to use the steel wool to finish the job anyway. 000 then 0000 steel wool vs these, not even close. Take a pass on this item.

Way Better Than Micro-Fine Paper

By Dave F. from Bayside, NY
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, April 17, 2013

They're not cheap and I don't know how long they'd last for a pro, but they're worth it if only because of the wear and tear they save on your fingers. I'll never use paper for polishing frets again. I do recommend a quick pass with 0000 steel wool though. That last touch adds a good bit of "mirror" shine to the steel.

Quick and easy way to shine up the frets. Any chatter marks or file marks need to be taken care of before they are used, but they create a nice finish.

Time Saver

Thanks to who ever dreamed these up. They have saved me so much finger breaking work and time. For me they get the frets to a point where I can do a final polish. Russ
