Universal size, they can be bent for any fingerboard width or curvature, taped down, or held by hand. It's a simple idea for a clean professional fret job!

Fingerboard Guards

This simple idea makes the job very easy. No more masking tape or adhesive issues. A real time saver.

Real time savers.

I previously would do the standard "painters tape" and Micromesh method to polish frets. The stainless guards save me about 40 minutes perjob now. My only suggestion is to wrap the outer edges with tape to prevent the sharp sides from digging in to the fretboard which can happen from time to time. I highly reccomend these as a real time saver!

Generally good

I like these, you get 6 for not much money and they mostly work well. Only issue is getting towards the high end of the fretboard, especially with wide frets, where you'll have to file the guards to be narrower if you want it to fit.

This is a time saver

I had several of this in the past. But it is good to have more. Great little tools but for the higher frets it is necessary to make them smaller.It is also usefull to have some bended 90 degrees to work at the end of a fret. Great to save the frentboard when polishing frets with a Dremel

Saves the fretboard

A very good product, I just wish that you will make some narrower guards for the higher frets
