Rough Fret Smooth + Shine Set

About This Item

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
This set not only works for taming seasonal fret sprout, you can use it year round for polishing your frets, and use the Micro-Mesh Pads and Stick to touch up scratches in your finish and pickguard.

Set Includes:
StewMac Fingerboard Guards
Protect the fretboard while you are working. Set of 6 fits all guitar fretwire sizes, anywhere on the neck. They're made of flexible 0.010" stainless steel for durability and long life. Also sold separately.

Fret End Dressing File
File and round the fret ends. Its smooth, non-marring edges glide on the fingerboard while the fine-toothed sides deburr and round the fret. Also sold separately.

Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads
Set of 9 grits to get the fret ends just right and polished silky smooth. Each pad features Micro-Mesh® resilient abrasive on both sides of a foam center. 2" x 2" square. Also sold separately.

Micro-Mesh Touch Up Stick
For the final polishing to get frets to a mirror shine. Three extra fine grits in one flexible tool: 2400, 4000 and 12000-grit. Also sold separately.

Not scared of Frets anymore

I’m new to fret work and have avoided it like the plague up until now. I used this set on a MIM Telecaster neck from a recent buy. The stock neck is getting replaced so I thought I’d play with the fret sprout issue it had. Using Stewmac YouTube videos and this set allowed me to do an outstanding job of cleaning up the fret sprout issue.
I got so cocky from the results I ordered a Stewmac fret file and leveled the fret too. The smooth and shine set came in handy cleaning up the frets after being leveled.

Fret Sprouts Beware

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this kit to remove fret sprout issues that came with a recent guitar purchase. The problem wasn't too bad and I used just the fret file and small polishing board to do the job.
Everything worked great and the frets are smooth and polished properly now.
