Details

Our Fret Slotting Saw has a rigid brass spine, and a comfortable traditionally-turned hardwood handle with ferrule. It looks right at home on a luthier's workbench.

Sheffield steel blade.
Make no mistake: this is NOT a standard hardware megamart backsaw! We started with a blade of legendary corrosion-resistant Sheffield steel, and specified .023" width to match our fretwire. We insisted on precision pull-cut teeth, to greatly reduce blade flex and jamming in harder fingerboard woods. Lastly, we designed an easy to use, removable clear acrylic depth stop. It slides up or down, with thumbscrews to precisely set any fret slot depth.

And one more thing: this saw works seamlessly with our Fret Slotting Miter Box.

The acrylic depth guide can be adjusted to expose as much as 1/4" of the blade, and is removable for cutting off the ends of a blank fingerboard. It's also sold separately.

Overall length 15-1/4" (387.35mm)
Cutting length 10" (254mm)
Blade depth 1-3/4" (44.45mm)

Cut accurate 90-degree slots when you use the saw with our Fret Slotting Miter Box. Add a Fret Scale Template and you'll never miscalculate your fret positions.

This is now my "go to" saw for cutting slots. I bought just the saw and made my own depth gauge for it which probably took less than 20 minutes.

This saw is top quality, does a great job. I bought it to cut out a super glued in saddle on a d-18 golden era. It worked great...........

needs a bit of tweeking before you get started, but once you are set. There's no easier way to get perfect fret slots.

Great Saw, One Problem

By DanielG from Ventura, CA

This is a great saw and is very well made with classy polished brass and an over sized blade length. One problem; the depth stop's lowest point is higher than a whole fret itself! I'm not into leaving pockets of air under my frets, so I had to modify the depth stop to go lower. Probably just mine. Annoying.
