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.

It Rocks

Another great innovation that leaves no doubt about wether or no you have a high fret. It finds them in a hurry and that saves you a lot of time. :)

A moneymaker

I find the tool very indispensable for determining if my fret dress jobs are complete, or if frets need dressing in the first place. On that end I was able to convince several customers to let me level the frets on their guitars after I show them that the frets on their Gibsons aren't level in the first place.

A Must Have!

I thought using a straight edge was sufficient enough when it came to checking high and low frets; boy was I wrong. I couldn't believe just how unlevel my frets were until I used this handy little gadget. Worth every penny and a must when checking and leveling your own frets...BUY ONE!!!

A Must Have Tool

There isn't a lot to say that has not ben said. Fret Rocker is the only way to check the frets. Unless you can Plek the neck.

great sizes to check levels, a bit pricey for a cut piece of metal though.
