Fret Rocker

About This Item

Pinpoint those pesky high frets, and check the final height after you've redressed or replaced them, reach for the Fret Rocker!

Our 4-in-1 mini straightedge spans three frets and "rocks" to indicate uneven fret heights. Precision-machined for accuracy to .0015" per foot, the 4", 3", 2" and 1-5/16" edges make it versatile for any fretted instrument, from basses to guitars to mandolins.

The Fret Rocker is made of stainless steel with a durable finish for professional use. It's an indispensable diagnostic tool, before and after partial refretting and recrowning jobs. It lets you do more accurate fret work for better playability.

Essential for Fretting
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

Will scratch frets...

By

Verified Buyer


Big believer in Stew Mac stuff, but this is not the greatest. No doubt it has flat sides, but the way these are machined leaves the edges very sharp. Other day I was working on frets just polished and it did scratch them. Caused for more work. Wish I could just smooth it out but then I'd probably just throw it out of true.

Does the job

By

Verified Buyer


Does what it is supposed to do but has two issues. 1. The sharpest corner is SHARP. It would help if that corner was beveled. If that makes those two sides too short, it seems easy enough to extend them to give room for a bevel. 2. Its really expensive, even in comparison to other StewMac products. How is this 2x the price of the set of four under string radius gauges? Those likely take more time to produce and probably result in more waste so it isn't like the amount of starting material is that different.

Well, made but It can scratch frets

By

Verified Buyer


It is well made. However, it can scratch your frets If you slide it too much because the edges are extremely sharp. It's the same issue as with the string action ruler. So when you use it just place it on the frets, check what you want to check and take it off-straight up.

Just Purchasing It Fixed All My Frets!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought an "El Cheapo" fret rocker that was telling me that most of my frets were awful on guitars that played well with good action. After watching a YouTuber rant about bad fret rockers I decided to spring for the real thing from StewMac. Lo and behold, all my guitars were instantly better! If you put the two rockers edge-to-edge, you can see light between them.
Live and learn.

Very quick and accurate way to check for high frets!!! I used to use a series of different length straight edges, but this is so much easier and more accurate!!!

Glad I purchased this tool. Was able to mark all frets that are high and individual locations after I adjusted the neck with their other tool!
Stew Mac is making me want to be a luthier!

Indispensable

I can't believe I went as long as I did without this. If you have a little fret buzz and can't figure out exactly where it's coming from, this tool immediately finds that problem high spot for you.
