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.

The 3 sizes cover all the types of frets. If you've got a old telecaster you'll need the narrow ones to do it right. They work very well.

I purchased these fingerboard guards because the ones I purchased as part of a kit through Amazon were not well made. These are quality.

Great for polishing frets with my Dremel, saves masking tape.
Everybody likes silky smooth frets to play on, save time and material with these guards.

Time saver

I'm doing my own set-ups and maintenance. This is great for crowning and polishing individual frets if you're only doing just a few that need attention as opposed to taping the neck. Works great!

Good for quick repairs and use, not for full neck work

By

Verified Buyer


I found that the shield sort of bulged in the center of the neck, making it have to be pressed down during sanding. I also found that the bands got in the way of my long file. I suppose if you only use this for the polishing portion, it works, but if you are working all the frets up and down the neck, you might as well tape up the neck instead.

On Instruments where damage is unacceptable use these because tape wont provide this level of fretboard protection IMHO if you think a tool available will help your workmanship or damage prevention just buy it . Alll tools serve a purpose but with out them your just crossing your fingers. Iv learned the hard way and Iv got the iremovable damage on my expensive to show it. Great tool you will not regret buying this

A Great Idea!

I have not actually put these into play yet, but I can't see why they wouldn't work. Besides, It has to be easier than taping up the entire fret board, right?
