StewMac Fret Buck

About This Item

Support for safe over-the-body fretting. Now a StewMac exclusive.

The Fret Buck was originally developed by Taylor Guitars, as a shock absorber for hammering frets over the body of an acoustic guitar. Made of cast iron, it rests over the guitar's shoulders on finish-friendly cork linings. An adjustable clamp reaches through the soundhole to provide firm support beneath the fingerboard, eliminating the need to widen the slots and glue in the frets.

We improved the design, adding a sliding cork-lined foot to the adjustable clamp so the Fret Buck now works for a wider range of guitars and bracings.

The Fret Buck is better and more affordable than ever—a valuable addition to your shop!

A Good Tool For Refretting


Verified Buyer

This fret buck is perfect for fretting the fretboard extension over the body. Mine arrived with the plastic knob broken though so watch out for that. Other than that the fret buck is amazing.

Hammer away.....


Verified Buyer

I've tried lead shot bags, sand bags, auto body dollies, presses, and this is unquestionably the best tool for the job.
