Designed by our Sonoma, CA team, we worked with top repair shops around the country to determine the perfect angle for beveling fret ends. Dealing with fret sprout or after installing new frets, the 23° angle provides the ideal bevel on frets for all styles of playing. Use the 3° angle for initial filing, fret sprout, flush filing or tang removal.

Fully adjustable 6” (15cm) file with a 2 ‘n 1 design that allows you to easily change between file finish, bevel angle degree, and is replaceable. One file side is Double Cut for heavy removal and a coarse cut with the other side of the file is Single Cut for fine removal and a smooth cut. The perfect 1-2 combination works for all fret wire types including nickel silver, EVO gold and stainless steel and helps get it primed for the next step, a fret dressing and polish.

Our innovative handle design includes a curved radius underside that is wide enough to cover the entire fretboard and keep you centered while filing, providing consistent results across the entire fretboard.

No detail is overlooked, the high carbon-steel file is treated with anti-rust coating and all 4 edges are polished smooth to protect your prized instrument. Our deeper channel recesses the file to clear the body when filing fret ends on acoustic guitars.

Made of high quality Acacia hardwood that is durable and long-lasting and is ergonomically designed to give you comfort and control when filing. We even include a convenient hang hole.

On our third guitar with the B-file and it's the best I've ever used. And I've tried a bunch!

What a great tool!

Armen from La Grande, OR wrote a Sweetwater review on the Fret Beveling File (B-File):

B-File, Be Good. This is a very nicely made and finished product. Fits well in your hand and works perfectly edging and beveling the frets. Leaves a real professional look and feel to your neck. Gets rid of those little rough edges that eat fingers. 

Lawrence left this review on Amazon about our Fret Beveling File (B-File):

Great tool for cleaning up fret sprout. Yes, there are similar tools, but not like this. This beveler has a radiused surface that conforms to the guitar neck better than a flat-bottomed bevel tool. The file angles were chosen to create optimum playability.
