Fret Saw and more

I have ordered several items recently from Folkcraft, besides the Fret Saw I’ve ordered 12 sets of strings, strap buttons, nut and bridge material, a book etc…. Most of the orders were filled and shipped pretty much on the same day. My items arrived in great condition and as always high quality products.

Detailed Saw

Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but like the looks of it and the different blades. looks like it would be good for fine detail work only, which is why i bought it.
