About This Item

The fastest and most profitable fret work ever!
When you've got a guitar with a high fret or a few spots that are buzzing, we have the solution for you. You know the story: a customer's guitar plays great and is set up perfectly, but ONE fret is too high and is causing buzzing. We made the Fret Kisser to solve this problem easily, accurately, and FAST!

Now you can do accurate and cost effective fretwork quickly! You don't even need to remove the strings.

The Fret Kisser spot levels high frets in an instant. What was a several hour job can be done in no time at all, you only file exactly where it's needed.

Everyday in your shop you have customers that can't afford costly fret work, or have an inexpensive guitar they don't want to spend a lot of money on. You can finally help these customers with setup and leveling that is fast for you and affordable for them.

Level just the fret you need
Spot leveling is difficult, especially when you need to level just one fret and avoid the frets around it. Now you can pinpoint the fret that's high and level it with no danger of affecting the other frets.

There is no other tool on the market that can level just one fret as precisely and quickly as the Fret Kisser.

Diamond coated, accurate, and easy
The concept is simple. We started with our Fret Rocker, which locates high frets easily, and made it thicker and heavier. In the middle of each section we added 300 grit diamond abrasive to quickly bring the fret level with its neighbors.

You have four different sides to zero-in just on the fret you need, no matter where you are on the fretboard. Each side is a precision ground straight edge. You'll only file exactly where it is needed.

Think of all the time you'll save leveling high-frets, without having to remove the strings or tape the board to do the leveling.

A road tech's dream
The Fret Kisser is a great tool for traveling guitar techs. With cramped space backstage, in hotel rooms, and tour buses, this tool lets you address fret issues with accuracy and get the guitar back in service.

And, if that's not enough—it's also great for refrets too. Knock down any extra high frets before leveling the entire board for faster and more accurate leveling right from the start. You won't have to spend extra time "catching up" some frets. If you are new to fretwork, this little tool is insurance for the occasional mistake.

Grab a Fret Kisser and kiss high frets goodbye!

excellent tool for the job

Got my StewMac Fret Kisser last week just in time for a job I had. It was an excellent tool for the fret job that I had going.

Worked Pretty Good

I was reluctant to buy this, due to feeling that it was over priced.

But, I caved in and bought it.

It worked ok on the guitar I was working on, which had a single high fret around fret 20.

I suppose I could do a little more work with it to get things a little better on the guitar that I was working on. But, at least it is playable now, where before using it the 19th and 20th fret produced the same note before using it and now do not.


I still think it is a bit over priced, as I could have bought a new neck for the price of this tool, but now I have a tool that I could use on multiple necks. I guess if I did this for a living, it would be worth the price.

Works like a champ. Natural derivative of the fret rocker. String-on functionality worth its weight in gold!

Saw the prototype at the 2017 ASIA conference. Ordered it as soon as it was avail. A bit pricey, until you use it. Worth every penny! Takes care of high frets quickly and perfectly. Big time saver and in this business time is money, Thanks Stew Mac !

This Fret Kisser is so great, I had to write a review. Like some tools they seem expensive at first, until it does the job perfectly, and you realize how much time you just saved. You not only find the high fret like the old fret rocker, but you can immediately begin filing it down to the same height as the 2 surrounding frets (safely and no further accidentally). The best part is you do all this with the strings on the guitar as it fits perfectly between them! Do a quick crown and polish and you are done.

Works great to spot level with the strings on so you can verify the buzz is gone before finishing the job.
