    Great value for the do-it-yourself guitarist

    Excellent quality frets end dressing file. Thin sides and edges have no teeth so as to protect the neck. One is totally flat, and the other slightly convex, which works out perfectly to get right down to where the fret meets the neck. It is a small file, and it takes considerable care and patience to do both sides of a guitar neck. This file may not be the only tool you will need to end up with perfectly polished snag-free fret ends, but with it, one could take care of any sharp ends to the point of making an inexpensive import guitar perfectly playable as far as sharp or sprouted fret ends to go. Further polishing is cool, but not really that important. By the way, I use many Japanese-made cutting and sawing tools in my wood shop. They are excellent.

    Perfect dressing file; it even looks like a miniature katana.

    Good quality high carbon steel.
    I decided to check if it was indeed high-carbon tool steel, and sure enough, the flat edge took the teeth off a lesser steel file.
    Not a scratch on this little file.
    It appears to be a micro tooth file, so take care getting the filings out before they fill in the bevels and become impossible to remove.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect of it for the price. However, once I got to use it, it worked well. I was able to dress my telecaster and Stratocaster frets in a short time. At the end of the fret dressing on two guitars, the file is still sharp. As far as I’m concerned, it has already paid for itself. I’ve never used expensive high-end files from brand-name luthier supply stores. But those are much more expensive. Considering I’m only working on my own guitars, in my opinion, this file is more than sufficient.

    I’m new to guitar fixing, but I think it’s doing the job on my Gibsons
