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.

Protection!

By

Verified Buyer


These fingerboard guards provide excellent protection of the fingerboard and reduce the fret crowning time, added time spent in tapping off the fingerboard.

You really need a set of these. They will save many tears of grief, from not messing up fingerboards, and save you on tape rolls.

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

By

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.
