Why waste time unstringing a guitar for a spot job on the nut or fretboard, when all you really want is to simply get the strings out of the way?

Try these handy string spreaders instead of the makeshift method you've been using—they'll become a busy addition to your basic tools.

Each curved brass spreader fits behind the neck, to capture the loosened strings and give you room for filing, cleaning, polishing or light repairs. Finish-friendly rubberized coating protects the neck.

3-3/8" long, set of 2.

Our thanks to repairman David Lynch for inspiring this handy tool.

I laughed until......

I ordered these with a chuckle, as they seemed a little silly. I stopped laughing when I actually needed to use them! Great tool!

String dummy

For years I've used a wood pencil to function like the string spacer. I'm a dummy. I should have thought of this. Its a great tool.........

These are simply phenomenal! Such a simple idea, yet so effective. Great for when you want to clean your fretboard (after you just put on new strings) or adjusting your pickup poles.

Nice addition to the toolbox!

I uses to use low-tack tape to do what these steel spreaders now take care of. They're padded well enough and do exactly what you need them to do when you don't want to unstring to work on a nut or a few frets. Quick & easy - will last forever.
