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 1/8" nickel-plated steel with a satin finish, for durability in 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
The Fret Rocker is one of seven tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Kit, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. Kit also includes our book, Fretwork Step By Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

Fret Rocker

Does what it says and does it well. I have 3 identical guitars all setup exactly the same, all with different levels of fret buzz. What do you know, the one with the most fret buzz has a lot of high frets in various places.

Great little tool...

Easy to find a high fret with this and can use it for a small straight edge for when a longer one won't fit...

A Necessity NOT a Luxury

You really need it to do a proper set-up. No more wondering if you have fret issues causing that BUZZ. It answers that question right away. Like most StewMac tools it is a bit expensive BUT of very high quality. All in all...totally worth it!

Setting up my guitar myself is all pretty new to me so any tool that helps me achieve a decent setup is a real plus.
