There is nothing like peace of mind while saving time and money. MusicNomad's patent pending Fret Shield sets a new higher standard for total fretboard protection when performing fret work such as polishing, leveling and crowning. Say "NO" to blue tape with our reusable design that goes on in seconds, fully protects without damaging the fretboard and lasts 100's of fret jobs. Our high quality stainless steel is the perfect thickness at .008" (.20mm), uses a precision manufacturing process free of burrs, and leaves all edges smooth and rounded. Our innovative formed drop-down edges allow the rubber bands we include to hold the Fret Shield in place securely and keep the bands below the top surface to avoid damaging them during the polishing process. Fret Shields come in the most popular Fret Scale sizes and even include a convenient hang hole. Whether your fretboard is finished maple or unfinished rosewood with inlays, your board will thank you for protecting it. That's MusicNomad quality - raising the bar in equipment care.
