String Spreaders, Set of 2

About This Item

Why waste time unstringing a guitar for a spot job on the nut or fretboard, when all you really want is to simply get the strings out of the way?

Try these handy string spreaders instead of the makeshift method you've been using—they'll become a busy addition to your basic tools.

Each curved brass spreader fits behind the neck, to capture the loosened strings and give you room for filing, cleaning, polishing or light repairs. Finish-friendly rubberized coating protects the neck.

3-3/8" long, set of 2.

Our thanks to repairman David Lynch for inspiring this handy tool.

Not perfect as they do want to slip and slide around the neck on me. Hopefully after more use, I'll get better at having them in place.

I love my String Spreaders

By

I am often asked if I can save the new strings on a customers guitar when doing some simple nut work or replacement, and the String Spreaders, this little simple idea, make my job so much easier. I used to use, tape, a tongue depressor, etc., but this little device works the best, easy to drop under the strings, leave no marks on the instrument and take up very room in my tool box. They have become a tool I reach for very often!

Thank you Stew Mac!

Invaluable tools

Well, I was delighted to purchase this set of two string spreaders! I always used to use a pair of lolly sticks to hold the strings away from the fretboard and always wondered when someone would bring out a professional set! If you want to oil the fingerboard, or any quick fret jobs, get these to literally take the strings out of the way without having to totally remove them! Absolutely fantastic idea...

I used these spreaders when doing a new nut, and when cleaning a few gigs worth of finger snot off a rosewood fingerboard. They worked great. I found them incredibly handy, and saved the time and hassle having to remove the strings. I love these things!

These are great! The rubber coating makes sure that they don't mar the finish. An essential tool in my shop.

I like these little helpers. In the past I used a wooden strip for the job. But these spreaders works much better. I have added a small hole at the ends so I can put them on the tool wall on a little nail. From Germany
