Worked great on my Gibson Les Paul Studio for fret crowning after sanding down irregularities introduced by wear and tear and leveling. Very easy to use, takes just a few seconds with adequate pressure. Just make sure to protect the guitar body and fretboard with something because the file is quite large and you might damage the body/neck if you're not extra careful. It also leaves the frets somewhat rough, so they will need additional polishing, as expected.
The file itself seems like it will last for at least a few fretjobs before wearing out. All in all great value and quality.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?

I bought this file to crown the Stainless Steel frets on the guitar I was working on. I assumed I might get one or two guitars done before the file wore down, but about 10 guitars later I am still using it and there is plenty of guitars left in it. Buyers should know that working with stainless steel frets, will shorten the lifespan of any file but this has served me very well. I only use it after I level the frets , to file the sides of the frets to remove the flat surface. which it does very well. It takes only from the sides of the fretwire which is exactly what you want! If you are working on regular nickel frets this file will last in you toolbox for a long long time. Its double sided which is great... It a good solid build... not to heavy and very comfortable to hold. Highly recommended!
