Fret Cutter

Spend less time filing fret ends!
This is the best tool for trimming the ends off fretwire.

A Stewart-MacDonald exclusive, our custom-made steel cutter has improved features you won't find on hardware store nippers.

The jaws are specially hardened for fret work, and they're profiled and flush-ground to cut the wire close to the fretboard. The result is a cleaner cut without pulling the wire, so you'll need to do less filing. Longer rubber-coated handles allow better access to the frets over a guitar body.

1" (25.4mm) jaw width, 8" (203.20mm) length.

Not recommended for use with stainless-steel fretwire.

Essential for Fretting
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

Great tool!!!!!!!

I was using the run of the mill cutter when a friend of mine who is a great guitar tech told me how much better this tool is. I caved and bought it. OH MY GOD!!! What a difference. It makes everything you have to do, following snipping the frets 10 times easier. It gives a clean cut right to the board. Great tool. Trust me, this is not a waste of money.

These work great. Useful for grabbing and lifting acoustic saddles and fender style nuts as well.

As i live in New Zealand it can be difficult to get the proper tools to do a job,so it has been a delight to discover you range of tools and the fret cutter has been a life saver so i will certainly be looking at others in the near future.

This tool is fantastic for cutting the fret ends off and any other cutting of fret material. But I made the mistake of cutting thicker brass nails, and my fret cutter did not survive that. Which is the only reason this product doesn't get 5 stars from me.

These cutters are the best tool I have purchased and used from your catalogue. I can not buy anything else like them anywhere. They are so usefull for so many jobs especially getting in very close to cut strings around posts and lots more.

Great Tool

I'm relatively new at building guitars and have only built six necks. Since this is only a hobby, I have been slow to invest a lot of money in tools. In the past I've used common wire cutters to cut my fret wire. I just finished fretting a neck with your fret wire cutters and I could not be more pleased with the tool. It cuts effortlessly and clean every time. The best feature, in my opinion, is how close to the edge it sheers the wire off. This reduces the time involved in finishing the end of the wire. This is a quality tool and there is no substitute that I have found at the tool stores. Thanks for the great service and quality product.
