Mini String Spreaders, Set of 2

About This Item

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.

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

Very handy...

(Customer's Reviews)

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


A Must Have Tool

(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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