Fingerboard guards

I have been using a fingerboard guard for some time now and it was starting to get sharp on the edges from the sanding etc. As a result I ordered the set of 6 from StewMac. I'm not really sure why I need 6 but I couldnt get them any other way. I now have a lifetime supply. As a product they work fine and are much better than masking each fret.

Touchups are quick

Doing a quick touchup, no problem. When re-fretting or re-crowning use tape.

Saves teh fret board

The guards cover well and protect the fret board. They do flex and bend, so you have to hold well or fix them down. Easily to handle with a little thought and practice.

Time saver!

These are very handy for a quick touch up. I still use blue masking tape if I'm doing anything major. They do what they say.

Quick & easy

If you find a high fret or have a ding you need to file\buff out, these work well at protecting the fretboard during the process. They do get a little tight in the upper frets but they should still work as expected. Not sure why you need 6 of these - maybe with prolonged use they'll bend\crease or just wear out.
