They're incredibly handy—use them in sequence as a final step on freshly-crowned frets, to erase fine file marks and scratches. The grits are color-coded for convenience. Frets gleam, and play buttery-smooth.

"I used to wrap abrasive papers around small rubber blocks, but that got a little clumsy. Fret Erasers are simpler and faster. No more sandy grit or sharp steel wool particles."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Each Fret Eraser is 2-1/2" x 3/4" x 3/8" (63.50mm x 19.05mm x 9.52mm)

SAVE when you order the complete set of 5 grits.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers and Fret Cutters. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

Great idea

Whom ever was inspired to invent these little miracles is a genius. It would be nice if some other genius invented a holder for them.

Pretty cool tools

Bought the two finest grits. These little things were pretty easy to use and did a good job. I liked what the 800 grit (grey color) did for the ends of the frets after using a Fret End Dressing File. It easily removed the smallest burrs and added a little polish to the ends. Had to use 0000 steel wool for about 30 seconds to get the shine I wanted.

Handy little things

These are very convenient for smoothing frets. But they need to add some in finer grits for real polishing, like 2000 or 3000. The Extra-Fine (yellow) is only 1000 grit. Steel wool is not good so I use 2000 wet/dry emery paper to finish. Also, fretboard needs to be well covered as these are not precise and will go through paper or tape easily.

Fret Erasers

I've been doing the 0000 steel wool treatment and have always HATED it! Messy, time consuming, not ideal. Enter these little life savers. Fast, easy, not messy. Some people are not happy that they get black so easy but it doesn't interfere with how they work. A simple wipe off after using them and they feel terrific. I still use tape on the fretboard as I don't want to take the chance but a more skilled person could w/o it. I have the 800 and 1000 but will be getting the full set next time :)

Great Erasers!

I bought a fret kit on the internet that made my frets rough. I should have known better. Buy a repair kit on a luthier site like stew mac. WOW! these erasers made my frets better than when my guitar was new, shiny and smooth. I don't know how i ever lived without them all these years. A must have for every guitarist. Thank you stew mac.

Forget sandpaper!

I've already burned through two sets of these. I use them for every fret dress and re-fret that I do. Great job Stew-Mac!

I was surprised at the results after using the eraser for the first time. I carry it in my repair kit for quick fixes. It's great for minor scratches on metal parts too.Erase,buff and you're done.
