I use these all the time when polishing frets and they are a neat product, and will last a long time. However, I would really like to see one more fingerboard guard with a slot big enough for wider frets :) -GitFix-

Great for protecting the fret board while crowning or polishing or shaping fret ends after replacing frets. They can be just a bit too wide to fit between the frets once you get to the 19th fret, but they're easily trimmed with shears or scissors.

Love these things!

Tape, tape and more tape..... Or not? I prefer or not! Always protect surfaces where needed but these are time and finish savers. A pack will last you many jobs and are well worth the money. A must for polishing and will save you a fortune in tape.

I used these items while smoothing and polishing frets on several guitar necks. They may not fit every application, but they are ahead of anything else I've seen.I would not want to be without them. They save a lot of time. I can recommend this item.

Close to useless...

If you have jumbo frets these may not fit over the entire fret. As already mentioned in other reviews, these have no use beyond the 19th fret. Why list this as a "set of 6"??? This is not a set at all, this is 6 of the same item. User beware, heed the negative reviews.

Love 'em!

I make tape wings for mine to make quick polishing jobs even quicker.

Buy some.

If you are filing frets a bit or just polishing up these things are magic! For 10 bucks .... wow ... ya never really have to tape off fret boards any more. Easily worth the money, I'd buy them if they cost double.

I was desperately seeking a way to clean frets.

I have been spraying necks for over a year and building Fender style guitars the way I choose; it has become a problem cleaning the clear coat off the maple frets and one day I found in the stew-mac catalog just what I needed, I will be using the Fretboard guards from now on and now makes my projects take much less time. Thank you Stewart MacDonald!

Essential tool!
