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.

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.

Essential Fretting Kit

By

Verified Buyer


The kit provided all the basic tools to undertake fret installation. I was initially sceptical about the utility of the fret rocker but this was a surprisingly useful item. The free book was also very useful and will be an excellent reference for future projects. I achieved a good result with these tools.

Excellent kit, however, the medium triangle fret dressing file would have been an asset.

Fret Cutters

By

Verified Buyer


The overall kit was ok but the fret cutters which I used just as Dan Erlewine demonstrated on the video,as far as I'm concerned a are junk. While changing all 20 frets on my Alvarez acoustic with bound fretboard I noticed the cutters would no longer cut the tang off the fret wire. Looking at them I could see why, the cutting edge was chipping off. I did manage to finish the project which I think for my first time came out pretty descent. I think it's pretty sad though to spend as much money as I did to create a hobbie workshop and the cutters didn't even make it through the first job. I guess I should be thankful I'm not doing this as a career, I'd go broke buying a set of cutters for every guitar I worked on.

Writing in my opinion, the essential kit for keyboard lacks one important tool is the fret fitter. thanks

Great way to get started

Verified Buyer


I've always had a fear of frets/fret work etc... I think this kit is the perfect way to get started, the included book is great and explained a lot of things I wasn't sure about. I have since re-fretted a practice neck, leveled & dressed a vintage Kay banjo neck, and have leveled a fingerboard & inlays and am getting ready to add frets to my Tricone resophonic guitar project!

I bought this for my first ever fret/refret job. In spite of my inexperience, between the book, tools, and some online Erlewine videos, I ended up with a professional looking, well playing fret job. The other tools I made to complete the fret work are a maple caul to press and set the frets down tight after hammering, and a radius block to level sand and clean up the fret board.
