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.

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.

Rough Fret Smooth + Shine Set includes:

StewMac Fingerboard Guards, for Guitar Also sold separately
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.

Fret End Dressing File Also sold separately
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.

Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads, 2" x 2" Also sold separately
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.

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

Work on your frets like a pro!

All "Dressed" Up and ready to go.

Living on the West Coast almost all Guitars and Necks I've purchased from the East Coast will eventually get Fret Sprouts or the sharp edges at the end of the Frets. This happens because our air out here is so dry and the wood will ever so slightly shrink. Long story short this file works like a champ! Problem solved, Thanks a Bunch, appreciate the help!

worked on Ibanez RG Prestige model

I bought an Ibanez, which was perfect in every way, but the frets were not finished at the ends. Between the sharp cut off and the wood shrink from lack of humidity, it was not pleasant sliding up & down the neck. This kit was excellent - it provided everything necessary to clean up the fret ends. And the youtube tutorial provided all the necessary training.

Essential maintenance tool

Polishing pads made my frets shine. String bends feel like they’re floating on glass. Fret dressing file worked perfectly, making a new neck feel like it was well worn an played in for years. 10 out of 10.
