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.

Easy enough for beginners

By Alex Roman from Philadelphia, PA
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, April 16, 2012

So I've been into building guitars but never thought of what I should do if one of my frets ever got mashed or mangled. Along with the fret dressing sander stick and these fret erasers I was able to remove a ding in my les Paul that's been there for years and made me avoid playing anything past the 15th fret. Thanks again.

New 'Fret Erasers'

By BobDWilliams from Woodbridge, Va

These erasers are fantastic for that final scratch removal process from your files! Don't be L-7, try these erasers out on your next fret repair / replacement.
The new fret erasers from StewMac are the best thing I have ever found for that finial finish of a fret job. It gets easier to use them each time I hold them in my hand. I started a small groove with a file across the ends to better fret fit. Nothing else compares to the ease and smoothness they leave the frets when youÆre done. All of the little tiny marks from my files have just disappeared like magic.

Slow, But Work OK

For a pro repair shop these are not a time-saving replacement for sandpaper during refrets. Hand sanding the frets with 600, 1000 and 2000 grit sandpaper prepares the frets for the buffing wheel much faster than these erasers.

Great time saver

I used these fret erasers to smooth up the top of the frets after leveling and then filng the radius back on. They worked great and saved time over the fret stick I used to use.

Very Nice

By Joel Hughes from Avondale, PA
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, April 05, 2012

These Fret Erasers are very nice and easy to use. If you are looking to clean up your frets or to make them smooth so bends are easier then I recommend this product. If your frets need to be sanded down you may want to look at something more agressive as these are more for a finished look/feel. Be sure to tape in between the frets so you do not damage the wood.

Great value, easier to use than files

By Neal Carey from Woburn, MA

These erasers for fret jobs make the rounding over and scratch removal process so much easier when fretting, just follow the color-coded steps to a really nicely finished fret. If you combine the fret erasers with the 3-corner dressing files you'll have every tool you need in your arsenal for a first-class fret job.

Fret Erasers

By truefret from Milton, WI
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, March 18, 2012

Great for a quick fret polish, I tried them on a very old 60's guitar and they did a very good job in a short amount of time. I would recommend the product to keep around your guitar shop.

Great product!

By SurfCook1 from Longboat Key, FL
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, March 16, 2012

Very cool. Being non-magnetic, it's a bit less hassle and way cleaner than the 'ole 4x steel wool while still doing the same job (using the Medium-fine/green). Great purchase for anyone around a fret.

Great Item!

By Stews Guitar Works from Warren MI USA
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, March 11, 2012

These are a great item, giving you another method of polishing up frets.
Tho I'm still getting used to using takes quite a bit more time to run through all the grits on 20-24 frets...I can do this quicker with sand papers, ScotchBrite, & steel wool.
But then again, these are less messy to use...
