Fret Rocker

About This Item

Pinpoint those pesky high frets, and check the final height after you've redressed or replaced them, reach for the Fret Rocker!

Our 4-in-1 mini straightedge spans three frets and "rocks" to indicate uneven fret heights. Precision-machined for accuracy to .0015" per foot, the 4", 3", 2" and 1-5/16" edges make it versatile for any fretted instrument, from basses to guitars to mandolins.

The Fret Rocker is made of stainless steel with a durable finish for professional use. It's an indispensable diagnostic tool, before and after partial refretting and recrowning jobs. It lets you do more accurate fret work for better playability.

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.

Nice little tool

Initially, I hesitated whether to buy this tool since basically it's a very simple piece of metal even though precisely made. However, I've come to the conclusion that this may be a lifetime investment - and will pay for itself over the years that I'm going to use it. So I bought it.

It's a nice thing - robust and easy to carry so now you can check the straightness of frets on all your friends' guitars in addition to your own :)

Best tool for the job

By

It a killer tool - They do wear out under heavy use though. The last one lasted about 1000 guitars, after that the edges bowed ever so slightly. However any tool that will put up with the abuse we give it and last 1000 guitars is a winner in my book.

flat

This thing is FLAT, precisely as needed, and the various sides DO correspond to varying fret-widths on the fretboard ... albeit a tad $pricey$.

small, all-in-one, easy and simple. it detects uneven frets fast and easy, so you won't need a total fret leveling.

Great Idea!

This tool can detect the smallest of height mis-matches. I checked with an accurate depth gauge and found that the rocker can detect 0.001''. this really helped in achieving a perfectly flat fretboard.

Excellent product, excellent quality,
but very pricy for what it is. I should have cut several lengths of a carpenter's square....

As a retired machinist with too many instruments with over 40 years of ware. This is one tool you have to have in your toolbox.

First class quality. This thing is straight as straight can be. I tried to save a few bucks with the one on ebay and it was crap. Pure junk. Don't skimp and try to save a few bucks. Get the best. If I could use another Id get it.
