Basic Setup Kit

About This Item

Make any guitar play better.

We're often asked to recommend "must-have" tools for setting up guitars. So we've made it easy: the Basic Setup Kit features our most popular setup tools. These are the same super-accurate, high quality steel setup tools that professional repair shops depend on.

Includes

String Action Gauge (inches) Also sold separately
The fastest way to measure the height of strings, nuts, saddles and pickup polepieces. Designed for stringed instrument work, it's much faster to use than any ruler.

18" Precision Straightedge Also sold separately
Machined for fanatic accuracy (to ±.0015" per foot)! Use it to check neck relief and evaluate truss rod adjustments.

Understring Radius Gauges Also sold separately
A big help for matching bridge saddle heights to the fretboard curvature, for easier playability. Accurately laser-cut from stainless steel, the set includes 9 different fretboard radii.

Free Instructions : Erick Coleman walks you through basic setup instructions to have your guitar playing great in no time.



Truss rod adjustment is an important part of guitar setup, too.
Our Truss Rod Wrench Set has the tool you need.

StewMac is a great and commendable business that has managed to have the respect of the industry in major places around the world. Not only are the items reasonably priced the delivery is fast and accurate. Especially when it has to come all the way down to Australia.
I wish there was a StewMac in Australia. Keep up the great work and how to's.

A slight learning curve if you have never tried to make adjustments but with Youtube "how to" video's if made all the sense in the world.

Now I can adjust guitar action that way I want it, not the factory presets.

Basic Setup Tools are Great to Have 

By

Verified Buyer


I was always just eye-balling my setup and going with that. I finally decided to buy the basic tools from StewMac to make my setups "legitimate". These are nice tools and now I feel better about
setting up my guitars. I would recommend these tools to anyone!

After a particularly mediocre setup done by a local "luthier", I decided to take matters into my own hands. I will prevail. Nice kit and great service from Stew-Mac.
