Great tool

Total rating

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.

Simple and good

Total rating

This file does the job quickly and easily. It is easy to make even, long, controlled strokes with a nice result.

The straight design makes it a bit more difficult to use higher up on the neck where the body is in the way. There, another method is required, which is less controlled.

It does not show any obvious wear after touch-up of around 10 guitars.

I have used this fret file on my les paul and strat and telecaster and it works very well ,there is very little signs off wear on it after three refrets would recommend

why oh why didnt i get one sooner

Total rating

If you've ever re-crowned leveled frets the old fashioned way, you'll wonder why you did'nt get one of these sooner, it really saves time and makes fret crowning MUCH easier.

nice polished edges so dose'nt rough up the fingerboard

Don't ride the file, use a light touch, Let the file do the work.

polish out chatter and tool marks afterwards.

to early to tell on long term quality but is sturdy enough to last a lot of re-crownings.

works good

Total rating

I bought this file and was able to refurbish the frets of my Telecaster first leveling the frets and afterwards bringing them back to the proper shape for a perfect intonation. so far so good.
