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

honestly, it took a couple of orders to finally purchase this because I was thinking it was a little expensive. But it works excellent, and I'm glad I picked one up. it is well worth the cost. I've used it a couple of times now and I'm sorry I hadn't bought one long ago.

Daily Use Item

This gets use in my shop daily. The edges are perfectly straight and they let you know exactly where problem fret areas are.

Rocker Rocks!

It's funny how something so simple can work so well. "Every Guitar needs Fretwork" should be engraved on the side of this thing. I love to pull this out when a customer brings a guitar in. Then I show him all the uneven frets that i'm going to take care of.... It's all included in my setups.

This is a must have tool for buying your first guitar to dressing the frets on that guitar you bought that has been played to death. I won't buy a guitar with out first checking the frets with this tool. Takes just a minute or two to give you a run down on the guitar neck of the guitar your checking out. Simple but very effective, it took me 15 minutes to stop the strings buzzing on my cheep Starcaster with this tool and a disposable finger nail sander. A great and necessary tool for both guitar players and builders.
