Our straightedges are made specifically for checking neck straightness and relief, evaluating truss rod adjustments, and pinpointing high or low frets. Four versatile lengths are available for working on any fretted instrument, from mandolins to guitars to basses.

The narrow beveled edge allows easy and accurate viewing of the gap between the edge and the surface being checked. Made of durable stainless steel with a satin finish for easy marking with a pencil, each straightedge is precision-machined for accuracy to ±.0015" per foot.

These straightedges are also ideal for laying out projects on wood or paper, and for setting up table saws, jointers and other shop equipment.

#3850 18" Precision Straightedge is part of our Basic Setup Kit.

For acoustic guitars, our Neck Set Gauge is designed to attach to the #3799 24" Precision Straightedge.

Not Great but Not Bad

This does pretty good for checking the neck and leveling frets, But I think I should have got the notched leveler. Mainly because you really can do neck, fret, and the fingerboard as well.

Fine tool

This 18" straightedge is a fine tool, well-made, and suitable to task. The only thing I'd change if I could would be to put dimension marks on it.

Precision Straightedge

Stewmac's Straightedges are very accurate with a beveled edge to be able to see in close to your work.
They are heavy, nicely made and have a good feel about them.

Hard to beat

The tapered edge makes this one a winner. Fair price and very high quality. Somewhat lightweight as well, which is nice.

Precision Straight Edge

Nothing fancy here, just a perfectly straight edge (mine is 18" long) with a beveled edge. Made of heavy duty materials.
