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.

I've been using twist ties or wire or whatever I had around to keep strings out of my way for fret work, etc. for decades. What a genius little invention - and really strong and protective too. Great purchase!

Simply Convenient

I have been using a popsicle stick with a piece of felt wrapped around it...... until now. It worked but I had to loosen the strings quite a bit. When I saw two of these for ten bucks it was just a bargain. Sure, I could sit down and make something but the money I would make in the time it would take to put them together far out weighs the cost. They are easy to use and protect the neck. Thank you Stewart- MacDonald...

I had used velcro to hold back the strings in the past and it always took some effort to get it all hooked up, worked but fumbly. These are a snap! easy to put in place and looks professional!

This may be my most used tool. Every time I work on a nut, or condition a fretboard. When I'm dressing frets on the fret jig, these things are in action.

Perfect!

This may be the most useful tool in the catalog! I'm amazed at how many times I use them. Perfect for nuts, oiling the fretboard, or doing fretwork without removing the strings.
