This set is suitable for local spot levelling when a complete fret level is not essential.


Set comprises of:

  • 2 Precision Spot Levellers 115mm & 70mm long.

  • Silicon Carbide Abrasive – 6 Grades.

  • Abrasive Template.

  • Fret Level Checker.



  • Slim design permitting single string dressing without affecting adjacent strings.

  • The strings can remain on the instrument.


To use:

Fit the spot leveller underneath the string at the mid position where there is maximum stretch available.


The choice of starting abrasive will be dependent on degree of wear but it is essential to use each stage after this, as skipping any grades will leave abrasions that will be difficult to remove with the finer abrasives.


Finish by using finer abrasive grades and successively longer strokes of the tool as this will erase any marks that have been carried along onto the adjacent frets.


(It is not necessary to raise the strings when working).


There is a small working overlap when moved to an adjacent string ensuring all of the fingerboard is accessible. The leveller sizes have been designed for standard abrasive sheets (280mm x 230mm) to be equally cut without waste.


6 Grades of abrasive paper : Coarse – Ultra Fine, are included with the kit. The rectangular template can be used to divide the sheet up equally and the abrasive will fit either spot leveller depending on which way it is fitted.


A useful Fret Level Checker is included to help identify problem frets.


The levellers are also suitable for fret dressing with the strings removed.

Use the 115mm long tool for the wider fret spacings (up to 12th fret approx) - and the 70mm tool for the remainder.
