    This pair of guards are 2 and 3 times the price elsewhere, for the exact same thing. PL has quality products at very fair prices.

    Perfect for what I needed!

    Posted by Unknown on May 28, 2017

    Great tool, used it on my bass Cort A5 to recrown the frets.
    One side has slightly sharper edges (barely noticeable) than the other so I used the smoother side against the fretboard, no issue at all.
    It made the work so much faster!

    Wished there were notches to anchor a rubber band. Because of lack of that I had to hold it one hand all the time. Not the most efficient way to do the job.

    Thumbs up to the shop who shipped it super fast. It was delivered faster than the initial estimate.

    Great price and quick delivery. Much faster than tape, just set, polish, and repeat until your done.

    Worked well

    Used these to protect the fretboard while polishing some stainless steel fret ends with a dremel and buffing attachment. Inexpensive way to keep you from damaging your fretboard. A no brainer in my book.

    DON'T even THINK about doing fret work without these...

    Posted by Don on Mar 19, 2015

    Did a complete fret level with recrown & polish on a guitar I built. Used to be painstaking, tedious work. The fret protectors allowed me to work at a much faster pace without leaving a mark on the fingerboard. Never again will I begin a fret job without these on the bench. Simple idea, huge benefit...

    Protects fingerboard

    Posted by Toolooze on Jun 2, 2014

    These guards are wonderful for polishing frets and protecting the fingerboard. The smaller size is for the higher, smaller frets.

    These are so simple yet protect the finger board from file damage. If your only gonna do one fret at a time and dont want to deal with tape these are great and they are reusable forever.
