Details

Better than your basic guards! Our improved design fits all fretwire sizes, anywhere on the neck. Protect your fretboard when filing or polishing a fret. 

New slot sizes: set of 6 for guitar now includes 2 guards each to fit narrow, medium and wide frets. Set of 4 for bass includes 2 guards each for medium and wide frets. The extra length fits 5 and 6-string bass guitars.

New slim profile: guards now fit between ALL the frets on guitars, banjos, and basses—even the high frets. Fits most mandolins and ukulele spaces, too.

New notches: a nice touch for holding the guard in place with a rubber band, freeing both your hands for the job. Tip of the hat to Steve Olson of Elderly Instruments for this idea!

Clean professional fret work!
Each of these handy guards fits over a fret for safe filing and polishing, to help keep your fretboard clean and unscratched. They're made of flexible 0.010" stainless steel for durability and long life.

Handy item.

These work great, since I tend to be one of those who scratches the fretboard while crowning, no matter how careful I try to be. My one issue has been - and maybe I'm not getting the technique right - that the rubber bands block the file a little. I keep breaking rubber bands. But they work fine even without the rubber band, so not a deal breaker.

Very handy!

These smart little things are very, very handy! Now it's a lot easier to polish frets without risk of damage to the fretboard!
