Gurian Three-in-one Fret File

About This Item

Designed by master luthier Michael Gurian.

When we're asked to recommend just one fret file, it's gotta be the 3-in-1. It's been popular since Michael Gurian designed it over 20 years ago. The angle in the shaft lifts the handle up away from the guitar, protecting the top. Since it has 3 interchangeable cutters it works for all fret widths, from basses to mandolins.

Steel shank, wooden handle. Overall length is 7" (178mm).
Each burr is 1-7/8" (47.63mm) long.

Replacement burrs sold separately.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

Perfect!

I can’t believe how much easier and how accurate I was able to crown and soften the edges. Best purchase I have made in a long time. A little 500 grit and jewelers rouge on a dremel and they were like new. Awesome tool!

looks like I ended up with a problem burr

By

Verified Buyer


I give stewmac 5 stars always and well deserved,but when I went to use the largest burr in this set, I discovered that one side is deeper than the other causing it to want to dig into the fretboard on one side. Its not perfectly symmetrical. with a little practice I can roll the file on its shorter side and eliminate the gouging the long side causes .other than that ,it has sped up my fret filing alot and is smooth enough to start with #180 when sanding to polish. I guess I'll see if I just got a dud file when this one wears out and I buy a replacement

Top-quality tool at a very good price.

Good, dependable tools aren't cheap! Neither was this three-in-one fret file, but the few less-expensive ones out there were not as versatile, and were obviously not as well made. The peace of mind that comes from knowing that I'm now equipped to do a pro-level fret job makes this tool well worth the price!
Four stars instead of five because it didn't come with a hex key for changing burrs. Cheap Epi and Squier guitars come with truss and saddle wrenches; why doesn't this quality Gurian tool?
