I’d like to thank all the customers that have sent emails regarding the fret leveling kit. With their permission their testimonials are listed below.
“…Just want to thank you for making such a great product. I am a total novice. 19 frets were uneven on my fender strat. I made sure the neck was straight before I began (another new thing for me). It took me a good few hours but in the end my strat has never been set up this well. The only buzzing now is me with delight.”
Michael Magennis, Ontario, Canada
…finally used the ‘Guitar” kit today, worked great. Of course, the fret I thought was buzzing wasn’t, (my playing), but another fret definitely rocked, followed instructions, went slowly, not to mess up so had to sand a couple of times after re-checking and it was leveled.
Chuck Nacsin, Redlands, CA

Level, Crown & Dress Frets for Ultimate Set-Up
The BUZZ-OFF® Fret Leveling Kit was originally developed by luthier John Bogdanovich to level and set up his guitars. The dowels are used to find the high frets, and the sanding block is used to crown and dress the frets. Resulting with frets that are all in the same plane for optimal set up.
The kit will detect frets that are as little as .002″ high. This will enable you to optimize your set up and get the action you desire.
And you do not have to remove the strings to use the kit. Just loosen the strings, tape them out of the way and you are good to go!
The kit was originally used on new necks that were flat but will work on a neck with the proper amount of relief as well. Since the dowels measure for flatness across just three frets the relief can be considered negligible over such a short distance.
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.
