Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Jack the Gripper

When you are working on any guitar with a pickup, you eventually will have to tighten the nut that holds the jack in place. This is not a difficult thing to do provided you have access to the back of the jack. You almost always do, provided you don't mind removing pickguards or back plates. This handy tool designed by Frank Ford allows you to hold and tighten the nut from the front of the jack. Imagine how much time that saves! It uses an eccentric knurled cam to grip and hold the jack securely. In addition, Frank has come up with a way to tighten recessed jacks using a cleverly designed wrench included with "the Gripper".
