..."just wanted to let you know that I purchased your fret leveling kit and I must say it is very nice... this kit will make fret-leveling a whole lot easier and more efficient. Thanks for the excellent tool and for being inexpensive!!"

-Kevin Jones, Kingsport, TN

..."Just wanted to say many thanks for the fret leveling kit. It's amazing how small tolerances and discrepancies in fret height show up easily with the system of yours. I leveled the frets on a guitar I never really cared for but now I love it! !!"

-Brian Scott, Sanford, Fl

..."I hope you make a million bucks selling those kits! They're great. With a little time and effort I've done all 5 of my guitars and they play like instruments that cost a lot more !!"

-Chris Wiliams, Raliegh, NC

..." I was able to adjust the action to the lowest I have ever seen and still have no fret buzz at all. The playability of my guitar is just fantastic! I just can't seem to put this guitar down. What a huge difference this work on the frets has made. I wanted to let you know that I think the kit you are selling is great. I'm a diehard do-it-your-selfer.

Once I saw your You Tube video, I thought this is the way to go. The price is extremely affordable, the service was outstanding with very quick delivery, and the ease of use is unbeatable. Your choice of papers is perfect - just aggressive enough with the coarse paper to work quickly, but with little chance of overdoing it. Then the fine paper smooths the fret and the steel wool polished my frets so well that you would never know I had worked on them.

Thanks for offering such a great kit at a price that is so much lower than the tools offer by the "usuals". And theirs look so much harder to use. You certainly have one very satisfied customer here.

How to Modify the Sanding Block for any Fret Wire

Guitar Making DVD

BUZZ-OFF® Fret Leveling Kit Sanding Block Easily Modified for Fret Size

The above video demonstrates how easy it is to modify the hardwood sanding block in the Buzz-Off® Fret Leveling Kit to fit your fret wire. Just place the 200 grit sandpaper rough side up on you fingerboard covering the fret. Rub the block over the fret with the sandpaper over it until the concave groove on the block matches your fret wire. If the depth of the groove on the bottom of the sanding block becomes too deep just sand off some material from the bottom edge of the block until you can sand the fret without touching the fingerboard surface and you are ready to go!

Origins of the Fret Leveling Kit

The BUZZ-OFF® Fret Leveling Kit was originally developed by luthier John Bogdanovich to level and set up his guitars. The necks were already flat and the dowels were used to find the high frets, and the sanding block used to crown and dress the frets. Resulting with frets all in the same plane for optimal set up. If your neck is twisted or warped in any way this kit will not be the answer to your problems, as a more involved repair is in order. But if the problem is one or more of your frets are higher than they should be, this kit will find, level, and dress any high frets in no time, a simple fret buzz fix.
