StewMac Fingerboard Guards

About This Item

Better than your basic guards! Our improved design fits all fretwire sizes, anywhere on the neck. Protect your fretboard when filing or polishing a fret.

New slot sizes: set of 6 for guitar now includes 2 guards each to fit narrow, medium and wide frets. Set of 4 for bass includes 2 guards each for medium and wide frets. The extra length fits 5 and 6-string bass guitars.

New slim profile: guards now fit between ALL the frets on guitars, banjos, and basses—even the high frets. Fits most mandolins and ukulele spaces, too.

New notches: a nice touch for holding the guard in place with a rubber band, freeing both your hands for the job. Tip of the hat to Steve Olson of Elderly Instruments for this idea!

Clean professional fret work!
Each of these handy guards fits over a fret for safe filing and polishing, to help keep your fretboard clean and unscratched. They're made of flexible 0.010" stainless steel for durability and long life.

MY mode in the past, was to just tape cheap feeler gauges from harbor Freight to the fingerboard, and blaze away. These are so much better. I suspect the rubber bands will fail long before the guards will, but rubber bands are cheap!
If one is just adjusting or replacing a couple of frets to smooth out an action, these are ideal.
Obviously, these are not the tool for setting up an entire fingerboard, but there are lots of available tools for that job.
Nice kit, good price.

I find they are too flimsy and they rise up off the fret board with the rubber bands. So I just used two fingers to hold them down. But their great with filing a nut 6 is more than enough

very useful

very useful little tool, to do fret works with confidence when, like me, you are a beginner. It compensate for lack of talent or experience and provide the confidence that you gonna do your fret job right, without worrying about scratching your fingerboard

These babies came in on time and were used right away on my own Strat. I just completed doing a fret-leveling, crowning, and polishing procedure and these babies saved me a lot of time. Great!

I love using these with the Fret Erasers, quick, easy, and efficient in the final dressing of the frets without the tape mess.

Good safety measure

By

Verified Buyer


Necessary if you do not have a safety edge on your files or if you are crowning the frets very close to the fingerboard. Make sure you buy the correct width to match your frets (for example, medium slots are too small for jumbo frets).
