Details

Improved and smoother than ever! Big improvements in smoothness and efficiency make this exclusive StewMac tool the ideal fret slotting solution for small shops.

Our R&D luthiers have added ball-bearing guides that make sawing impressively easier and a lot faster. No more binding or jamming: cutting fret slots is a pleasure instead of a chore!

SAVE when you order the miter box with our Fret Slotting Saw or Japanese Fret Saw.

"You won't believe how smoothly our improved fret slotting system works!"
—Don MacRostie, StewMac R&D

The ball-bearing guides hold your fret saw perpendicular to the fingerboard, and can be adjusted to match the blade precisely. You can quickly slot any board up to 3" (76.2mm) wide, with adjustable depth of cut for any fretwire. You always have an unobstructed view of your work, too—a feature you'll appreciate. Made of rugged aluminum and 12" (304.8mm) long, our miter box has convenient mounting holes for firm attachment to your workbench.

Note: Since the Miter Box only accommodates fingerboards up to 1/2" thick, it will not work for traditional Fender style one-piece necks, or one-piece cigar box guitar necks.


Saw precise fret scales without measuring. A special indexing pin in the side of the miter box is for use with our Dual Fret Scale Templates. They enable fast, easy and accurate fret slotting for common scales. No guesswork, no tedious measuring—a tremendous time-saver!

fret supplies

Purchased the fret miter box and I think that it is one of the finest machines that I have had the privilege of using. No more "guessing" about the frets being straight. the Japanese saw is a rigid saw that fits the miter box perfectly.

This tool does fret slots exactly. Very very easy to use. Expect perfect results because that's what you will get. Expensive but worth every penny. Get the Japanese saw.

"Hummed and hahhed" as to getting one of these and decided to "bite the bullet" and order it with the Japanese saw and a couple of fret scale templates.(got the new Tenor/ Baritone Uke & Banjo/Mandolin ones) I'm gobsmacked by the quality of it all. No regrets. Thank you,Stew Mac,for a wonderful addition to my workshop. AA++ Fast service too.

Great piece of equipment

Delivery to U.K. was amazingly fast in under 48 hours.

Great service and great material, but these things are expensive in Italy. I am sorry for this. (Too high customs charges) This is' the price of globalization, a saw Japanese bought in USA and used in Italy!

Only the Best!

I set this fret slotting jig up on my work bench (after fiddling around with the older version of this tool SM offered) and let me say I was blown away with how quick, accurate and efficient this tool is! In ten minutes, I was done with perfect fret slots cut into the maple fretboard! Do buy the Dual FB Scale template and Japanese Saw that goes with it. 10 Stars!
