Rough Fret Smooth + Shine Set

About This Item

Tools and supplies to tame fret sprout, buff and shine frets and make your instrument play silky smooth.

Don't let fret sprout stop you from playing your favorite guitar. This kit has everything you need to fix it yourself. When dry weather comes around, your fretboard can shrink and the fret ends poke out. Sharp fret ends can slow you down, feel uncomfortable, or cut your hand. This is a very common repair that comes around with every change of seasons.

More than just fret ends
This set not only works for taming seasonal fret sprout, you can use it year round for polishing your frets, and use the Micro-Mesh Pads and Stick to touch up scratches in your finish and pickguard.

Rough Fret Smooth + Shine Set includes:

StewMac Fingerboard Guards, for Guitar Also sold separately
Protect the fretboard while you are working. Set of 6 fits all guitar fretwire sizes, anywhere on the neck. They're made of flexible 0.010" stainless steel for durability and long life.

Fret End Dressing File Also sold separately
File and round the fret ends. Its smooth, non-marring edges glide on the fingerboard while the fine-toothed sides deburr and round the fret.

Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Pads, 2" x 2" Also sold separately
Set of 9 grits to get the fret ends just right and polished silky smooth. Each pad features Micro-Mesh® resilient abrasive on both sides of a foam center.

Micro-Mesh Touch Up Stick Also sold separately
For the final polishing to get frets to a mirror shine. Three extra fine grits in one flexible tool: 2400, 4000 and 12000-grit.

Work on your frets like a pro!

No more  fretsprouting!

I live in Colorado and after a short while my guitars start experiencing the frets sticking out and feeling very sharp to my hands. This kit was very easy to use and after watching the stewmac video I was able to fix the problem and now my guitars are playing like I want them to as if they came from a custom shop!

This is every guitar player's best friend when it comes to DIY fret sprout removal. I have so far used the kit to to address sharp fret ends on a new tenor ukele and the same on a rosewood fretboard tele style guitar. Both instruments have been transformed as far as comfort and playability--without the unnecessary cuts from sharp sprouting frets.
Beginner to upper mid-range level guitars sometimes have fret sprout within the first year of ownership. This kit is worth the price--especially if you play and need to maintain more than one guitar.

I have a 1969 L-5 that needed good fret cleaning because is hasn't been played in a while. Everything worked like it is instructed. Now I know the difference between nasty frets and perfectly clean frets. It worked perfect

Living on the West Coast almost all Guitars and Necks I've purchased from the East Coast will eventually get Fret Sprouts or the sharp edges at the end of the Frets. This happens because our air out here is so dry and the wood will ever so slightly shrink. Long story short this file works like a champ! Problem solved, Thanks a Bunch, appreciate the help!
