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.

Great little product !

Cool idea ! Makes a little bit of a mess, but easy to brush away, unlike 0000 steel wool . Very easy to grip and maneuver around the frets, and pretty much no worry about about scratching the finish or fretboard while using the very fine grits. When mine wear out, i will get more for sure !

No mess!

This sure beats the metal grain that results in using 0000 steel wool. No flake getting everywhere and no more taping the pickups. The labels on them are handy too so you know what grit to use.

Not what I hoped for

This looked great from other reviews, but I found them to be quite the opposite

They don't save me any time.
They still make a mess (eraser-like shavings)
They don't leave a shine any better than 0000 steelwool (Which is not great for anything other than a Squier).

My prefered method to polish after crowning is: Sanding-Stick with 400 & 600-grit belts, then 3M polishing papers.

I ordered all five grits and have done 10 fret dressings with these. a lot less mess then steel wool and sandpaper. Also recommend the mirco fiber pads and start with these then finish with micro pads you frets will, Gleam! I will never go back ..well unless I get a 25 year old guitar that has been played hard with original frets! Buy these.

Pretty Decent

Just started trying these in my repair shop on a tip from a friend. Have used on 3 fret dressings so far. In my limited use my conclusions are the following:
Don't seem to get the pre polish shine that I do when using some sandpaper and steelwool. I thought they would do a better job of this. Definitely cleaner on the hands than the aforementioned sandpaper and steelwool. Nice for doing a quick cleanup on frets for a guitar that is in for a setup and not really paying extra for a full fret polish. Shape is very nice to fit over the frets when using the fret guards from Stew Mac. Maybe my opinion will change after using them a few more times, but they are about a 3 or 3.5 to me. I can see perhaps using 400 grit sandpaper first and then going to these. My standard mode for polishing frets that have just been leveled and rouned is this: I usually go from 400 to 600 to 0000 steel wool, and them dremel polish them with diamond bar. That gets them just about factory shiny. These Fret Eraser alone dont even come close to that, but again, in conjunction with sandpaper first and dremel after I can see them being really useful. Hope that helps.

Time Saver!

The fret erasers work very well for me!The 1000gt is overkill for me though, cause I do the final polish with a buffing wheel.

5 for 5!

If you haven't tried these grit erasers you are missing something amazing! I bought the set of 5 and the time I saved using them once paid for themselves. This idea was long overdue.

Great for a Quick Finish

I still prefer the sand stick and progressively finer grits after leveling or dressing but the Fret Erasers are quick and easy for putting a high shine on frets. I use them when setting up a new guitar. I also carry a couple in my gig kit (along with a couple of Fingerboard Guards) for quick touch ups.

They are not almond paste but they are
also excellent for working very well finished without worry.

They do a nice job in a pinch. Don't know how much time I'll save with them as I am always set up with proper paper and sticks, but still nice to have.
