Fret Erasers

About This Item

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 7 grits: 220, 400, 800, 1200, 2000, 4000, and 8000.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

Player or tech. If you've got frets, you'll want these!

No mess. No fuss. Get a good shine in a snap. If you like fresh frets with every string change, these will take 1/4 the time. At home, in the shop. I'll use em for everything! Well, maybe not fretless basses. But everything else!
Stew Mac rocks.

Ideal for cleaning dirty fretboards

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the 200, 400 and 800 grit erasers for cleaning mighty dirty fretboards. And they do an excellent job. The 5 stars are for this usage - I don't use them for fretwork.

Saves your right thumb!

Another great Stewmac product! I bought 400, 800, and 1200 grits. I'm two jobs in with them. I really like the price to value and the performance. In my opinion the heavy grits are best for lighter dressing work. (When more aggressive shaping isn't involved.) I think I'd stick with more traditional methods up to 1000 grit in those cases. I will definetly order the finer grits for all jobs though. No more sore thumb. No more steel wool cleanup!

Ok but not great

By

Verified Buyer


For some reason I'm not crazy for these fret erasers. They do their job adequately but I don't think they are that great. Just fair.

Awesome!

I have lots of guitars. As part of My regular maintenance routine, I'm forever polishing frets with a polishing compound and a Dremel tool. Messy, gets the fretboard dirty even with the neck masked off (which is it's own pain in the ass). These solve all that, and they're fast to work with. Great products!

These work great

By

Verified Buyer


I bought quite a few of these and I'm glad I did they work great for doing any kind of fretwork clean up after crowning frets the lower grits clean up the file marks and just keep working your way up to the fine grits to get a smooth finish to make polishing do much easier and the way the ends are squared off you can reach the whole fret easily, very glad I purchased these!

Pretty good.

I've been using 4-0 steel wool and was looking for something less messy and easier on my fingers. This worked well on both counts. I bought the 1200 and 2000 grit erasers, but I think I may need to add a coarser grit as well. Be aware that these things are pretty small compared to regular erasers, but I'd think they'd last for 100 fret jobs or more.

Barely Adequate

By

Verified Buyer


I rarely write reviews, but after dropping way too much money on a set of erasers and seeing the results, I felt compelled. These would be fine in a busy shop for refrets, but if you are thinking these will quickly give you nicely polished frets that match a high quality custom build, think again. Stewmac's micro polishing papers will do a better job and way faster (they come in a set of 6 grits - you only need to use 4 of the papers to achieve much better results than running through the 6 erasers). On the plus side, I have 6 really expensive sanding blocks for the micro polishing papers.
