Quarter-round concave filing surfaces are at each edge of this unique fret file. The smooth flat underside minimizes fretboard marring while rounding the fret ends.

Each smooth-cut filing surface is 4-1/2" long and extends approximately .080" above the fretboard. The file is 3/8" wide, and is fitted with a turned hardwood handle and brass ferrule.

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 Fret File!!

This is a fantastic fret file. It can be used not only to crown frets but also to round off the sharp edges of the fret ends. I have dressed many guitars now with this file and it is as sharp as when it was new. I have also had NO problems with marring any fretboards with it. It WILL NOT cut into the fretboard unless you really try to mess things up. Very easy to use and very comfortable in your hand.
