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.

Works good and is everything that it states it is.... but..... It is, again, much more expensive than it needs to be. I love Stewmac through and through... but Geeeeeez.. Lower your prices!!!

This works as expected, and 10 minutes after I got it, I found the frets that needed adjustments. Very helpful

After doing my first fret job, this is an invalueable tool to level everything out. You hit the highspots with a good single cut file, finish it out with the 3 in 1 fret file, then hit it with the fret polishing stick. Put the neck back on, string it up and you're ready to rock! StewMac has everything you need! The right tools always let you win.

Quickly find high frets

By

I had seen a video where a guy used a credit card to check for high frets. Seemed like a good idea and works to some degree, but if the credit card isn't completely flat it loses accuracy. Trying the credit card trick made me decide to order the fret rocker. I wanted to see how it works and I love it. It is wide enough to stand on its edged so you know it is perpendicular to the frets and there is no question about its accuracy. Bad thing is that now I see how much work I really have to do to make my guitars play better.

Useful tool.

I am restoring several old Silvertone and Harmony acoustic guitars. I found this tool to be helpful in identifying high frets that were causing fret buzz. These old guitars are notorious for having extremely high action. I have been able to get the action as low as on any quality modern guitar. Some might say that wouldn't be possible but it is and this tool helped get it done.

It just plain works

Works just like the video says. Found the high fret, filed it, no more buzz. A must if you like low action.

Elegant Solution

Armed with this and a Sharpie, you can find any and all high frets (or _areas_ of frets) on an entire fretboard in not much more time than it is taking me to type this. Simple + incredibly effective = elegant solution.
