Mini String Spreaders, Set of 2

About This Item

They're little, but they're BIG time savers for spot repairs on a fretboard! Fixing loose fret or high frets, or cleaning a fingerboard, without removing the strings.

Made of tough nylon for long life. Each spreader is grooved for non-slip positioning on a fret. Set of 2.

Dimensions
1-3/16" x 5/8" x 1/4" tall (30.02mm x 15.24mm x 6.35mm)

Our thanks to Australian luthier Glenn Bird for inspiring these handy tools!

"I needed something quick and easy, to do anything from cleaning a fretboard to working on a fret buzz — or gluing down a loose fret — without taking the strings off. I can work on a trouble spot and keep checking that the neck is playing well, without winding tension off the strings and back on again. That saves a lot of time and energy. A big thank you to StewMac for making this little time saving tool."
— Glenn Bird

Good for working on small fret areas

By

Verified Buyer


These don't spread as widely as I would like and the strings may still be in the way. I prefer the under the neck string spreaders which really get the strings out of the way. I should note that even with locking tuners I make a couple of wraps around the posts to allow string loosening. Without those wraps these mini spreaders would be essential for small areas of fret work.

A Must Have Tool

I had some frets that were high in spots, these Mini String Spreaders are a must have tool. After I tried them I liked them. A great time saver. You can do spot repairs with out having to destring and restring.

Great. No longer a "boing" as when using wooden blocks and the string springs over it. Great. From Germany

I always keep a few of these on my workbench. Great for spreading strings to clean a gunked up fretboard and great for doing any localized fretwork and polishing.
