StewMac Fret Cutter

About This Item

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.

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.

Cannot do without it

My new Fret Cutter is essential to all my fret work; my old Fret Cutter lasted through 10 years of pounding. Though it's chewed up and can't be used for fret work anymore, I now use it for pulling roll pins under the fret board; it has just enough grip.

Fretting easier

A solid pair of cutters that I feel will have many years of service at the fret bench. Cuts close and much cleaner than regular end nippers will. Yet another tool from Stew-Mac that i am completly happy with.

Takes the worry out of squeezing the end of the wire. Nice clean cut reduces time to finish fret ends.

The fret cutter gets very close to the neck and makes a very clean cut. This saves time later in the filing and sanding stage. When a couple of my frets did not seat properly, the cutter also doubles as a nifty fret puller.

I tried to cut the fretwire ends with my shop cutters, but couldn't get close enough to the fretboard. These cutters will be my go to cutters for fret work. Nicely made too.
