“Just stumbled upon your website, after beginning a search to start a long-held desire to build an instrument, and all I can say is, "WOW'!!!! What an absolute treasure trove of delights, information, goodies! I look forward to ordering the fruits of a trawl through your extensive, if not mind-blowing array of products! WOW!"

Fret Saw



This fine toothed backsaw (20 fully set teeth per inch) for cutting fret slots quickly cuts through Ebony or Rosewood, leaving a clean and precise slot. It has a .023" (.55mm) kerf for normal fretwire sizes and the steel is hard enough to cut nonferrous metals. These saws are custom made for us with the blade reversed to cut in the "pull" direction. This is for more accuracy and ease of cut. If you use it as a fret saw only, it has an extra long life. Depth of cut 1 5/8". Available with either a Rosewood handle (US only) or dark handle (Beech).

This saw is also included with our Manual Slotting System.
