They're incredibly handy—use them in sequence as a final step on freshly-crowned frets, to erase fine file marks and scratches. The grits are color-coded for convenience. Frets gleam, and play buttery-smooth.

"I used to wrap abrasive papers around small rubber blocks, but that got a little clumsy. Fret Erasers are simpler and faster. No more sandy grit or sharp steel wool particles."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Each Fret Eraser is 2-1/2" x 3/4" x 3/8" (63.50mm x 19.05mm x 9.52mm)

SAVE when you order the complete set of 5 grits.

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.

You need sandpaper first

These are great for bringing the frets up to a smooth shine, but always start with 400 grit sandpaper first to get rid of deeper marks after fret dressing.

A godsend

These things are a permanent fixture in my fretting tools now. Absolutely amazing, easy clean up I'd recommend them to EVERYONE.

Why not sooner!?

By far one of the best things I've bought. Shines up frets soooo fast. I just wish they were available sooner.

Good once you figure them out.

I think some people get these expecting them to be magic, but they aren't. However, if you use regular sandpaper first to get rid of scuffs then go through these, you will get a pretty nice shine. Some polishing compound afterwards should get you a nice mirror finish, but these alone won't.

As good as I expected

If your frets look good before you start using these you'll be in good shape. Address any chatter or file marks prior to starting. I found that some 800 grit gold sandpaper prior to using these erasers did the trick nicely. Great tool to have - nice innovation!
