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!

Love it.

I sat on the living room couch and knocked down a fret with the front kisser and made the guitar playable while watching the evening news, wish they invented this a long long time ago. Don't know how it could have been any easier. Feels good to buy something that actually delivers on its promise.

Felt foolproof

By

Verified Buyer


I've never done fretwork before and I was able to level them with this tool, the fret rocker and a crowning file. It felt foolproof and came out great. I just used the kisser until the fret was more or less level, then used the crowning file for that last little bit. No re-work required.

Success on the first try!

By

Verified Buyer


My first use was on a guitar that I paid about the same amount as the cost of this tool. With the action set low on the guitar, there were 3 'high/dead spots' on various frets between the 2nd and 9th. I took the offending spots down to where the tool still just barely rocked and switched to a fret end dressing file (not optimal) to re-crown the spots. I finished them off with 1000 and 2000 grit wet/dry paper and moved on to green then white scotch-brite pads. No more dead spots and the frets are smooth. Success!

Great tool

By

Verified Buyer


This thing is great. spot leveling can be a little more risky than leveling all the frets at once, but this tool is a great way to deal with a couple high frets and only take off exactly what is needed
