Our 4-in-1 mini straightedge spans three frets and "rocks" to indicate uneven fret heights. Precision-machined for accuracy to .0015" per foot, the 4", 3", 2" and 1-5/16" edges make it versatile for any fretted instrument, from basses to guitars to mandolins.

The Fret Rocker is made of 1/8" nickel-plated steel with a satin finish, for durability in professional use. It's an indispensable diagnostic tool, before and after partial refretting and recrowning jobs. It lets you do more accurate fret work for better playability.

Essential for fretting
The Fret Rocker is one of seven tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Kit, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. Kit also includes our book, Fretwork Step By Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

Excellent product, excellent quality,
but very pricy for what it is. I should have cut several lengths of a carpenter's square....

A must have.

As a retired machinist with too many instruments with over 40 years of ware. This is one tool you have to have in your toolbox.

Great Item

First class quality. This thing is straight as straight can be. I tried to save a few bucks with the one on ebay and it was crap. Pure junk. Don't skimp and try to save a few bucks. Get the best. If I could use another Id get it.

What I didn't know did hurt me!

The first thing I noticed was that my frets are not flush. The worst thing is on the B-string, the D# note "that fret - the fourh fret" is high on every guitar I own? I don't know if it's because I have pushed the third fret down so much, since we play the D chord a lot or the fourth fret is high for some other reason? That D# note is were I get more buzz than any place on my guitars....

On the Level with the Fret Rocker

A must have for me. I use it on every
board that has frets. Very high quality. A must-have recommendation!
Worth the cost.

First class tool.

Just what you need for checking for high frets. No tool kit should be without this.

Rock On

I'm a budding ukulele luthier and I know as a machinist, if you want to do the job right, you sometimes need the right tool. The fret rocker is such a tool. It has made a sometimes frustrating job much easier. The Stewmac fret rocker is a well made, quality tool.

Works Wonders

I recently purchased the Fret Rocker because I was having trouble finding high spots on the setups I'd been doing. This is a perfect tool to find that one high spot on a fret board, without the expense and hassle of leveling the entire board. Best purchase Ive made in a long time! Gotta Love Stew Mac!!
