About This Item

The fastest and most profitable fret work ever!
When you've got a guitar with a high fret or a few spots that are buzzing, we have the solution for you. You know the story: a customer's guitar plays great and is set up perfectly, but ONE fret is too high and is causing buzzing. We made the Fret Kisser to solve this problem easily, accurately, and FAST!

Now you can do accurate and cost effective fretwork quickly! You don't even need to remove the strings.

The Fret Kisser spot levels high frets in an instant. What was a several hour job can be done in no time at all, you only file exactly where it's needed.

Everyday in your shop you have customers that can't afford costly fret work, or have an inexpensive guitar they don't want to spend a lot of money on. You can finally help these customers with setup and leveling that is fast for you and affordable for them.

Level just the fret you need
Spot leveling is difficult, especially when you need to level just one fret and avoid the frets around it. Now you can pinpoint the fret that's high and level it with no danger of affecting the other frets.

There is no other tool on the market that can level just one fret as precisely and quickly as the Fret Kisser.

Diamond coated, accurate, and easy
The concept is simple. We started with our Fret Rocker, which locates high frets easily, and made it thicker and heavier. In the middle of each section we added 300 grit diamond abrasive to quickly bring the fret level with its neighbors.

You have four different sides to zero-in just on the fret you need, no matter where you are on the fretboard. Each side is a precision ground straight edge. You'll only file exactly where it is needed.

Think of all the time you'll save leveling high-frets, without having to remove the strings or tape the board to do the leveling.

A road tech's dream
The Fret Kisser is a great tool for traveling guitar techs. With cramped space backstage, in hotel rooms, and tour buses, this tool lets you address fret issues with accuracy and get the guitar back in service.

And, if that's not enough—it's also great for refrets too. Knock down any extra high frets before leveling the entire board for faster and more accurate leveling right from the start. You won't have to spend extra time "catching up" some frets. If you are new to fretwork, this little tool is insurance for the occasional mistake.

Grab a Fret Kisser and kiss high frets goodbye!

One of the best repair devices. Period.

I just missed grabbing this on a previous sale, and regretted it for a few months. After finally getting one, I now regret not getting it earlier even more, because this thing is INCREDIBLE for leveling high spots on frets. I will never adjust a neck without it again. Every repairman, guitar tech/builder, or DIY guitar enthusiast should have one of these in their toolbox. Cannot recommend high enough.

I run a guitar retail shop where routine maintenance on customers instruments is a constant focus. Some jobs (such as a full fret level) do not lend themselves to being able to do it on a busy day.....but this amazing tool takes a lot of the time consuming work out of the job! On the first day it arrived I managed to level off an acoustic with 6 high spots quickly and with superb results, an essential buy!

I didn't want to spend the money for the fret kisser when it first came out.I decided to go for it! After using it just one time I wish I would have ordered it right away. What a time saver. I recommend anyone doing fret work to have one in your tool set! You will not regret it. Good job StewMac!

Fret Kisser OMG

By

Verified Buyer


Just used this on my second refret. As a guitar repairman/technician, I have done over hundred refrets. That’s not counting the unknown amount of fret levels I’ve had to do. This thing just save me about 3 to 4 hours worth of work on a refret, And accomplished the job better than the old-school way. I hate to give a review, LOL, for fear of my competition finding out about this tool and how awesome it is.

This, combined with micromesh to polish them off, was an easy solution to a couple of high frets. So much easier than any other method I've used. It's not cheap, but so worth it!

Pricey.... but worth it.

OK, at first I was like $175 (I got the stick file as well) for this little tool is kinda way out in left field. It is nice and weighty with diamond files on each side. After using it for 2 minutes, I knew it was worth every penny. Cuts through the fret like hot butter and saves a LOT of time. This reminded me of something that I am often reminded of..... you get what you pay for or you pay for what you get. Don't think about, just buy this tool..... you won't be sorry.

Fret Kisser Happyness

This thing is so cool, I could have saved myself hundreds of hours of work in my 20 plus years of guitar repair at our local music store here in Bozeman/Livingston, MT. It is so fast for spot levelling with strings on at pitch. No guess work, great tool.

This Fret Kisser is perfect for leveling a lone high fret. Just make sure the fret is not loose at all before using. Wick some thin cyano under the fret if you are not sure. Then kiss it with the Fret Kisser. Fantastic tool!
