Product Description

The BUZZ-OFF® Fret Leveling Kit can fix fret buzz caused by high frets. The kit will find, level and crown high frets to eliminate fret buzz and optimize set-up.  Fret leveling is easy with the kit. Anyone can do it. You don’t need a repair person.

Fret Buzz can have many causes but the most common is a high fret. Sometimes frets are not seated properly when installed leaving one or more high and in the way causing fret buzz. Frets can wear making one or more lower than they should. The same problem results. A fret need only be a couple of thousandths of an inch high can cause a buzz in an otherwise properly set up instrument. A good fret leveling will take care of the problem. The kit will level, crown and dress fret without files – and without scratches! The kit is easy to use and everything is included. You don’t have to be a guitar maker or a repair tech to get the job done right.

The kit was originally developed by luthier John Bogdanovich to level and set up guitars. The dowels are flat within .0001″ and are used to find the high frets. The sanding block is used with the sand paper  to crown the frets. And the steel wool is to dress the frets polished to a shine.  Get your frets all in the same plane and optimize your guitar’s 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. The kit is not for neck flattening. 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.

The fret leveling kit for guitars contains:

  • a 3″ steel dowel for frets 1-12
  • a 2″ steel dowel for frets 12-20
  • a 1-1/2″ steel dowel for frets 21-24
  • a hardwood sanding block shaped to crown the frets
  • 1 pc of 220 grit sandpaper
  • 1 pc of 440 grit sandpaper
  • 1 pc of #0000 steel wool
  • Instructions

There is enough sandpaper and steel wool for one guitar. For additional use just replace the sandpaper and steel wool.

    Hello John,

    Thank you again for rushing your Buzz-Off Fret Leveling Kit to me so quickly.

    I was able to get rid of the buzz on my son’s Taylor in no time. Found two frets that needed leveling and your kit worked exactly as advertised. I have several other guitars I plan to use your kit on.

    It was easy to use and worked great.

    Hello John,

    I am more-than-happy to provide my review of your Buzz-Off Fret Leveling kit, which thus far has enabled me to resurrect a 1970’s Les Paul with average fret heights < 0.02", and also eliminate string buzz and poor intonation on a CIJ Fender Strat with multiple worn and dented frets.

    Thanks very much for making the Buzz-Off kit available to "lay" guitarists like myself. It is only entry-level tool I've encountered that de-mystifies the fundamental skill required to achieve the professional fret work of a Luthier.
