I'm just a guitarist, not a luthier but i've been doing some repairs to my Strat and i got the haynes manual for Strats and saw these inside! Took forever to find them online but i found these and though i only really need the 9.5 one i couldn't be happier!!!
Good tool, really useful. But why is it so short? I mean, you can't use it on a 7 strings guitar, nor a 5 or 6 string bass.
These little beauties are an absolute treat - they've saved me so much time already and they help me produce a better setup every time. So much easier than fighting with the ruler! And being such a reasonable price, I wonder why I didn't get them earlier!
These gauges are easy to use and make set ups more refined. I highly recommend these!!
Ce petit instrument permet d'identifier la courbure de la touche et de régler parfaitement la hauteur des cordes. Tout simplement indispensable !
When selling guitars people often ask the neck radius. It seems to be very important to them. With these you can tell in an instant. I measure at the 12th fret. Very precise.
I was having a hard time with the B string on my Lavavee acoustic occasionally buzzing from not seating on the fret with certain bar chords. The under string radius gauge showed that the saddle for the B string sat several thousands on an inch proud to the other strings. A slight adjustment to the saddle corrected this and now the guitar plays like a champ!
A must have for setup.
Strong and very useful.
nice tool, but it's too short for 5 and 6 string basses
Essential for any guitar tech! No reason to buy the radius gauges, these ones does it all. The only thing I'm missing, as with all radiused Stewmac products is one for the Ibanez 430mm radius.
