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.

Fret Rocker

This is a precision tool if I have ever seen one. It lets me tweak frets down to the smallest fraction. I find it to be one of the most valuable tools that I have in my shop. No more dead or buzzing frets!

Wasn't sure at first.

I was not sure at first that this little tool would do all they said it would. Now I can't imagine doing a fret job without one.

Fret Rocker, A Great Tool`

Thank you for the Fret Rocker. It arrived in the UK in less time than you suggested, and on my set ups I'm already checking all my customers' frets with this great tool!
The Fret Rocker, Helps me maintain a fret Buzz free` guitar with a lower action, and using it, I find that even new instruments suffer with a "raised Fret" or two, and the "Fret Rocker" is the tool that will find the offending high fret that you can simply "Tap" or "Smoth" down. This tool, "saved" this lovely Gibson Lucile` What a great invention!
I sincerely thank your staff for the quick service you provided yet again!
Regards, Chris.
