Testimonials

Greetings,

I recently ordered a couple of Bearclaw Sitka guitar tops and I wanted to let you know that not only did they arrive safe and sound but they are beautiful. Amazing figure! Having been less than satisfied with some wood suppliers over the years it's comforting to know that LMII has consistently come across in both quality and integrity. I never have to worry and that's a wonderful thing!

Thanks again,
Marc Beneteau

Fret Crowning Files

FFR and FFR2

Fret file set, FFS

Fret files are made for rounding or crowning frets after leveling them. We carry a couple of different options:

  • The FFR fret rounding file is for medium-sized fretwire and has two cutting hollows of equal size. One hollow is a coarse cut (bastard) for efficient chip removal, and the other is a fine cut (mill) for more accurate dressing. Use this file with our FW74, FW72, or any other medium-sized fretwire.

    The FFR2 file is for wider fretwire and has the same coarse and fine cut hollows. Use this with our larger crowned fretwire.

    We also carry a Fret File Set of 3 tool steel files, FFS. There is a narrow, a medium and a wide file and each file has two equally sized cutting edges. The cutting edge of the medium and wide file extends to the flat surface (see photo), so it is necessary to tape off the fingerboard (always a good idea, anyway). 

  • Each file in the FFS set measures 7 3/8" long x 5/8" wide with a 4" cutting edge. The colored rubber handles enable you to get a good grip when filing.
