Product Details

They're little, but they're BIG time savers for spot repairs on a fretboard! Fixing loose fret or high frets, or cleaning a fingerboard, without removing the strings.

Made of tough nylon for long life. Each spreader is grooved for non-slip positioning on a fret. Set of 2.

Dimensions
1-3/16" x 5/8" x 1/4" tall (30.02mm x 15.24mm x 6.35mm)

Our thanks to Australian luthier Glenn Bird for inspiring these handy tools!

"I needed something quick and easy, to do anything from cleaning a fretboard to working on a fret buzz — or gluing down a loose fret — without taking the strings off. I can work on a trouble spot and keep checking that the neck is playing well, without winding tension off the strings and back on again. That saves a lot of time and energy. A big thank you to StewMac for making this little time saving tool."
— Glenn Bird

Haven't had a job to use them on yet, but tried them out and seems to work great. Solves an annoying little problem simply and inexpensively. Good stuff from SM as always

I had some frets that were high in spots, these Mini String Spreaders are a must have tool. After I tried them I liked them. A great time saver. You can do spot repairs with out having to destring and restring.

Nice little tool

Great. No longer a "boing" as when using wooden blocks and the string springs over it. Great. From Germany

I always keep a few of these on my workbench. Great for spreading strings to clean a gunked up fretboard and great for doing any localized fretwork and polishing.

Lots of Help

These are great. Great for small fret work with strings on. Great for thrust rod adjustment with the strings on. It allows the strings to get out of the way without removing.
