StewMac Fret Buck

About This Item

Support for safe over-the-body fretting. Now a StewMac exclusive.

The Fret Buck was originally developed by Taylor Guitars, as a shock absorber for hammering frets over the body of an acoustic guitar. Made of cast iron, it rests over the guitar's shoulders on finish-friendly cork linings. An adjustable clamp reaches through the soundhole to provide firm support beneath the fingerboard, eliminating the need to widen the slots and glue in the frets.

We improved the design, adding a sliding cork-lined foot to the adjustable clamp so the Fret Buck now works for a wider range of guitars and bracings.

The Fret Buck is better and more affordable than ever—a valuable addition to your shop!

I Defintely Recommend This!

At first I thought the Fret Buck was a bit gimmicky, but I decided to give it a try. It is quite heavy which had me nervous in the beginning since acoustic tops are thin and require a gentler touch. This tool is great! It provides added support in the upper-register of the fingerboard for fret work. It is especially beneficial when hammering frets into the fingerboard because the added stability absorbs the hammer blows while providing solid support underneath the fingerboard from inside the sound hole as well. It can be set up and removed with little fuss.

The Fret Buck was packaged nicely in two boxes, is made in Taiwan and isn't shabby at all.
It is a good addition to any guitar repair shop that handles acoustic guitar fret work.

Second time a charm!

After first receiving a Buck that was cast terribly and would not work, StewMac, as usual, stepped up to the plate. After I contacted them, I had a new unit at my door within a week. This one was top notch! Very nice piece of equipment. Thank you, StewMac!!

A Good Tool For Refretting

This fret buck is perfect for fretting the fretboard extension over the body. Mine arrived with the plastic knob broken though so watch out for that. Other than that the fret buck is amazing.

I've tried lead shot bags, sand bags, auto body dollies, presses, and this is unquestionably the best tool for the job.
