Tools and supplies to tame fret sprout, buff and shine frets and make your instrument play silky smooth.
Don't let fret sprout stop you from playing your favorite guitar. This kit has everything you need to fix it yourself. When dry weather comes around, your fretboard can shrink and the fret ends poke out. Sharp fret ends can slow you down, feel uncomfortable, or cut your hand. This is a very common repair that comes around with every change of seasons.
Work on your frets like a pro!
This is a great way to get your feet wet with guitar repair. In the set you'll get a set of Fingerboard Guards to protect the fretboard while you are working, a Fret End Dressing File to file and round the fret ends, a set of nine Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads in various grits to get the fret ends just right and polished silky smooth, and a Micro-Mesh Touch Up Stick for the final polishing to get them to a mirror shine.
More than just fret ends
