Luthier's File Set, Set of 5

About This Item

Quality files for jobs that are too big for needle files, but require finer control than larger files.

Each 8-1/2" file has 00-cut (38 teeth/inch).

Great for nut, saddle and bridge work; for refitting pegholes; for fine neck shaping, and other shop uses.

The set includes round, flat, square, half-round and 3-corner files.

Final-shaping a neck with files and scrapers

Shaping a neck is all about feel. Chelsea Clark learned from Dan Erlewine, and honed her skills on abandoned "project guitars" found on Craigslist and eBay. Chelsea shares some great tips on shaping the neck and preparing it for a finish.

You can never have enough files

Nice file set... I was thinking they would be a little more aggressive... kinda like the nut and saddle shaping file that I use all the time.
These are cool though as they are like a slightly larger needle file. They are good for getting in to small places and have a good size handle.

I use them a lot along with some other files I have, they were a good buy for me. I recommend them, though I prefer stewmac's razor files for hard woods such as rosewood etc
