This is a useful tool, but I agree with some of the others that a smaller size is needed for the higher frets. I wish I could find that. But these things work great.
When doing fret work i used to put scotch tape on the whole fret board and when it ripped I'd put on more tape. With these Finger Board Guards I must have saved myself an hour of tedium. Thank you stew mac.
These look nice at first glance and are quite useful on the lower frets (closer to headstock). However they don't fit on the upper frets (18 and above) as they are too wide for the space between two frets. Stewmac should know better. Some reviewers warned about this, but I haven't read them prior to purchase because I didn't doubt in Stewmac's expertise.Since they are all the same size, there is no need for six of them, and consequently the price is too high.
These protectors work well and I can do fret work without taping the fretboard. I like them.
A handy tool to have around. It does slide a bit, but you can kink it, and put some masking tape on the fingerboard side so it doesn't mark it if it moves.
These guards make fret work easy and can save you time . I used them on my new Strat neck. filing and polishing came out great . They're not expensive either for a pack of 6 .
These work very well for me and are preferred to wrapping up the fretboard in copius amounts of tape!

I hope that whoever thought of these is now a wealthy person.
I have been using a fingerboard guard for some time now and it was starting to get sharp on the edges from the sanding etc. As a result I ordered the set of 6 from StewMac. I'm not really sure why I need 6 but I couldnt get them any other way. I now have a lifetime supply. As a product they work fine and are much better than masking each fret.
