Music Nomad Fret Shield™
Fretboard Protector Guard for F-25.50" Guitar Fret Scale

Product Story
There is nothing like peace of mind while saving time and money. MusicNomad's patent pending Fret Shield sets a new higher standard for total fretboard protection when performing fret work such as polishing, leveling and crowning. Say "NO" to blue tape with our reusable design that goes on in seconds, fully protects without damaging the fretboard and lasts 100's of fret jobs. Our high quality stainless steel is the perfect thickness at .008" (.20mm), uses a precision manufacturing process free of burrs, and leaves all edges smooth and rounded. Our innovative formed drop-down edges allow the rubber bands we include to hold the Fret Shield in place securely and keep the bands below the top surface to avoid damaging them during the polishing process. Fret Shields come in the most popular Fret Scale sizes and even include a convenient hang hole. Whether your fretboard is finished maple or unfinished rosewood with inlays, your board will thank you for protecting it. That's MusicNomad quality - raising the bar in equipment care.
Product Features
Our patent pending Fret Shield gives you total fretboard protection when performing fret work such as polishing, leveling and crowning on a 25.5" Guitar Fret Scale up to 24 frets. Say "no to blue tape" and save time and money with this reusable design that goes on in seconds, fully protects without damaging the fretboard and lasts 100's of fret jobs.
Our high quality stainless steel is the perfect thickness at .008" (.20mm). We use a precision manufacturing process free of burrs and leaves all edges smooth and rounded, so it protects the fretboard without damaging it. The tapered design has slot sizes that measure from the first fret .125" (3.18mm) W x 2.075" (52.715mm) L to the last fret .125" (3.18mm) W x 2.516" (63.916mm) L and fits all fret sizes (from narrow to jumbo) found on 6 string guitars.
Our innovative formed drop-down edges allow the rubber bands we include to hold the Fret Shield in place securely and keep the bands below the top surface to avoid damaging them during the polishing process. The bands also help perfectly form the shield to every fretboard radius.
Rigorously tested and designed to be used with power buffing wheels, power polishing pads and other polishing systems. Laser etched logo and size will withstand sanding and filing during fretwork. Extremely useful for protecting all unfinished (rosewood, ebony) and finished (poly and lacquer) fretboards. Convenient hang hole.
Common 25.5" Fret Scales are Most: FENDER® (Strat, Tele, Squier), TAYLOR®, IBANEZ®, CHARVEL®, ESP®, JACKSON®, KRAMER®, SCHECTER®, PRS® Silver Sky and STEINBERGER® Models.
To determine your Guitar's Fret Scale size, see our FAQs to choose the correct Fret Shield or use our Tri-Beam Fret Scale Ruler MN820 (sold separately) to determine your Fret Scale size and which Fret Shield to buy.

Q: My Gibson says 24.75" guitar scale. How come it doesn't work with MN804 (E-24.75)?

A: Gibson refers to 24 ¾" for their standard guitar scale, but since they've used fret spacing formula(s) different from the modern standard, Gibson uses the Rule of 18 for fret spacing while the rest of the industry uses the Rule of 17.817. This change in the calculation results in scale lengths shorter than a traditional 24 ¾" from most other makers. Gibson's modern boards end up the equivalent of a 24.57" scale length. The MN801 (G-Electric) Fret Shield is made specifically for Gibson electric guitar scales.

Q: How do I determine the scale length of my guitar?

A: How to determine your scale length depends on what tools you have on your bench. See below for different methods of measuring scale length based on the tools you can access. We have provided 3 ways below. (MN820), place the zero edge flush against the inside edge of the nut (see photo below)

and measure to the center of the 12th fret (see photo below).

If your scale length is one of the more common scale lengths, the center of the fret will align with one of the scale callouts on the ruler. If not, read measurement and then double it to calculate your guitar scale.

2. Using a tape measure or ruler, align the 1" mark with the inside edge of the nut (see photo below)

and measure to the center of the 12th fret (see photo below).

Take the difference between the measurement and 1" and double it to calculate your guitar scale.
3. If you are still unsure about your guitar scale, contact our Guitar Tech at [email protected] and we will be happy to assist you.

Q: Where can I find replacement rubber bands to hold down my shield?

A: The rubber bands are size 16. You can use household rubber bands or hair ties. You can also buy them in bulk.

Q: How can I get my rubber bands to be fixed on one side?

A: You can tie a knot. Think of a water balloon at one end of the rubber band. On top of the knot, the short side, wrap over the tab and the rubber band will stay installed (see photo below).

Q: Will the Fret Shields fit guitars with more than 6 strings?

A: In the product bullet points and photos, the first and last fret lengths are provided. To be able to identify if the Fret Shield that matches your guitar scale will fit a guitar with more than 6 strings, measure the length of your first and last frets and compare against the provided dimensions to determine fit.

Q: The hold downs under my neck work great, how can I secure the portion without tabs above the body of the guitar?

A: Tape down the shield to the pickup using a piece of painters tape just behind the last fret slot opening.

Q: The hold down tabs of the fret shield extend over the body of my guitar, what can I do to ensure they won’t come into contact with the body during use?

A: Due to the brands have different dimensions from the body of the guitar to the nut even though they are using the same scale, some hold down tabs may extend over the body of the guitar. For example, on the MN800, 25.5” scale, the tabs will not extend over the body of a Fender Strat but will on a Taylor. Easy solution is to place a strip of painters tape on the body of the guitar beneath the areas where the tabs extend over the body eliminating any issues while in use.

Q: Are fret ends accessible for deburring-file work when the Fret Shields are on?

A: No, the Fret Shield is made to protect the fretboard when performing fret work such as polishing, leveling and crowning. The thickness of the Fret Shield and size of the slots will not allow you to get the angle to properly file the fret ends.
