Fret Shield

About This Item

Don't let the strings dent your frets
Slide this plastic guard under the strings to keep your frets shiny and smooth. This is especially helpful when shipping guitars: your customer opens the case to see flawless, gleaming frets—a great first impression.

The Fret Shield™ is flexible frosted plastic with a non-slip foam pad (won't react to finishes).

Width tapers from 1-11/16" to 2-3/16" (297mm to 56mm)
Length: 19-3/8" (492mm)

Can be trimmed shorter for different instruments. Not long enough for bass guitars.

Foam is too thick!

By

Verified Buyer


It looks cool and protects the frets from strings... BUT, the foam is too thick, making it very hard to slide under, and once you manage it, strings are pulled too high. I had to reduce thickness in order for this to work properly.

Poorly Finished

By

Verified Buyer


I've just received 20 of these and they are poorly finished with uneven and sharp corners that could scratch a fingerboard. They look like they've been made with a box cutter rather than laser or die cut. I was expecting something of a similar quality to the ones that higher end guitars ship with. Not great value for money in the first place, but even less so if I have to waste time checking and trimming them. I was looking to buy a lot more of them, but will have to look elsewhere for a better finished item. These will be the first things that I've ever felt like returning to Stewmac.

These Fret Shields are the perfect solution to a common problem!

So glad for these. These fret shields were hard to find. I’m surprised there aren’t more versions or brands easily available out there. Nonetheless, these are perfect. No more divots unnecessarily damaging the frets.

String saver !!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these for all my Les Paul’s they do a wonderful job of protecting the neck and also extending life of my strings. By having this between the strings and the neck,when the case is closed, I do not see any fret marks on the underside of my strings anymore. The strings last a lot longer. These are very affordable and I’d recommend them to everyone. Great job Stewmac !!

Great accessory !

By

These are great. Keeps the strings, and any dirt, oils, etc., off the frets and fingerboard while in snug fitting cases. I'll be using them on all my guitars. Have to order more !

Quite handy when...

...setting up tremolos and you need to turn the guitar over and adjust springs. Don't need to worry about strings dinging the frets.

These guards are great for returning or shipping a guitar, especially after fret work. Gives a professional first impression.

Great item, Worth every penny! A+++

I originally purchased an ESP Eclipse II standard a few years back and it came with an ESP factory fret shield that I wished every guitar I own came with! So of course once I got the email that StewMac started making these, I had to have them for all my other axes! I bought 4 and man are they amazing! Not only a great idea for anyone that wants they're frets to last and uses a case for the life of they're guitar, but they require ZERO Trimming to fit practically anything, a stratocaster, tele, les Paul, or Es-335, anything practically! Now granted it might proceed a bit past the fretboard on some guitars but that's just protecting the neck pickup too! I love these things and if you value your instruments you will love them too! THANK YOU STEWMAC ONCE AGAIN!
