The package includes: Fret Slotting Jig Base + Fret Scale Template Set + Fretsaw.

The jig simplifies slotting of guitar scale fretboards and includes everything necessary.



  • 525mm long x 70mm wide Hardwood Jig Base.
  • Precision Fret Scale Template Set (Over 25 Inch & Metric sizes to choose from) .
  • 2.5mm Fixed Depth Luthiers Fretsaw 0.023" kerf (0.6mm).
  • Datum Fret Slot Locator.
  • 5x Spare Fretsaw Blades.


For fretboards wider than 70mm please see the 78mm version of the jig.



The jig is designed for guitar scale fretboards up to 27.5".

25 scale sizes are available from the drop down list.




The jig base is constructed from 20mm thick solid hardwood and has a rubber covering on the top face which provides support & grip for the fretboard. The base is fitted with 4-rubber feet.


For stability, we recommend that the jig is clamped in a vice. The solid base permits this without damage or crushing the jig sides.




The jig is supplied with a 2.5mm depth fretsaw as standard. This can be substituted for an alternative depth if preferred. (Sanding the board radius will reduce the fret slot depth at the edges and the 2.5mm saw leaves suitable remaining depth for the majority fretwire). 5 blades are included with the saw. Each kerf is precision set to 0.6mm and 100% inspected in our workshop.



The package includes a set of Fret Scale Templates. For detailed information on their application please see the Fret Slotting Information page.


Additional Templates are also available.

Spare Blades can also be purchased from the webstore.
