Essential Fretting Tool Set

About This Item

Good basic tools you'll need to get started.
Includes the definitive Fret Work Step-By-Step book!

Want to learn how to fret a guitar, but not sure how to start or which tools to choose? Stop fretting...and start fretting! Assembled by our experts, the Essential Fretting Tool Set is a great way to master the fundamentals with only a modest investment in good quality tools.

These are the basic tools you'll need for installing, leveling, crowning and inspecting frets.

And to give you the best possible head start, we include Fret Work Step-By-Step book. It's the most complete book ever published on the subject, with techniques, tips, tools and tricks.

The Essential Fretting Set features the same tools we supply to professional repair shops—good tools that give you the confidence to do good work. They'll help prepare you for more specialized jobs and tools later as your skills develop.

Includes (click the links for details on each tool)
Fret Cutter
Deadblow Fretting Hammer
Fret Leveling File, 6"
Double-edge Fret File, wide/jumbo
Fret End Dressing File
Fret Dressing Stick with 14 Micro-Mesh Belts
Fret Rocker
Fret Work Step-By-Step, 2nd edition

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. 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.

I bought this set 3 yrs. ago and have used it to fret ukuleles and cigar box guitars as all Stew Mac tools these are great for the beginner and pro alike. The price is right and you also get the fretting book in the deal which sweetens the deal!!

Makes it a breeze!

Used other files and assorted tools for this work and took a good bit longer to compleet. Used new tools and bang, job done in at least half the time with a great outcome! Right tool for the job is a must. If you plan on doing this kind of work either for yourself or others i highly recomend the StewMac tools. Also with the video support you really can't go wrong!

Arrived very quickly. Quality of each item is top notch. The accompanying book was easy to understand and packed with information for a novice like me. I performed my first fret job on my favorite electric and it turned out well. This is a good investment for anyone looking to start doing fretwork on their own. I have a couple more instruments that need fretwork so this kit will quickly pay for itself.
