Perfect to finishing frets, but For the upper frets is too wide, I had to reduce a one fingerboard guard to fit in it.
I wish they made one that covered the whole fretboard...very easy tool to spot fix any high fret by saving time from taping. You have to hold it with one hand while using the other to do whatever work is needed. I found it really easy when you get someone to hold it for you..lol. Its a "must have" tool for a small price that will last a long time
These guards are a timesaver. I was so tired of taping off fingerboards...makes it so easy to work on frets now.
A good idea but the slots are too wide for med. fretwire.Tighter slots would make these much better!
I use these on almost every fret job, very secure and fast. I found the slot to be a little to narrow for jumbo wire, so a small flat file and some abrasive paper to smooth the edge and it was easy enough to widen. I also have one a thinned out on the grinding wheel that will fit between the higher frets, though that thing gets a little squirrely being so thin with a huge slot down the middle of it.
All in all a great investment in a busy shop, just keep them clean and don't allow filings to work their way under the guard, or you'll mar the fretboard.
When something is simple and works great ya can't go wrong. These gaurds worked great for me and I've never tackeld a crowning job before.
I got this tool to polish my frets with my dremel and it is impossible to use from 18th to 24th frets. It is to wide on those frets. Please in this six pack include differents sizes.
The days of taping are over. These guards are so easy to use I can't imagine every being without them. Get a set - you will love them.
Not much To Say ...
I use the Stew-Mac 'Fingerboard Guards' on all my guitars. Man, what a time saver! No more taping up just to do a little fret maintenance/cleaning. The ones I received fit all the way up to #20 on my Strats and LPs, but work fine, with very little effort, on #'s 21 & 22. You could trim them, but it's really not that necessary. Great product. Buy it :-)
