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.

After sales service

I posted a complaint about the fingerboard guards but it seems to have disappeared. Anyway, StewMac Customer Service emailed me saying they felt I had a faulty set and they offered a refund or replacement. I chose a replacement and was advised within hours that the new set were on their way from the USofA to me here down-under.
5 stars for the very excellent response and service.

Exactly what it says

The elastic bands allow for easy movement from fret to fret, and as a such, they fit on any guitar. A must-have item for polishing and filing frets....that is, if you don't want your fingerboard all dinged up in the process.

I recommend highly

For any fret work, these are a must-have. The rubber bands are useless since the guards cut right through them, but it's easy enough to hold in place.

GREAT, but better with aleration

By

Verified Buyer


these do the job as they were designed to do but the issue I have with them is their extension out past the fret ends does not allow full fret end file utilization, as those strokes need to have a slight downward angle (well, at least for my fret end dressing) ....solution: but a 90 degree bend in one of the ends, thus allowing the guard to hand down and around the neck wood below, allowing any level of downward file angle yet still giving full access to the fret end, plus the added protection of the wood below the fret on the sides

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 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!
