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): 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 : Machined for fanatic accuracy (to ±.0015" per foot)! Use it to check neck relief and evaluate truss rod adjustments.

Understring Radius Gauges : 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.

Basic Setup Tools are Great to Have 

By

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.

I received my setup kit and found one of the under-string radius gauges in the kit was significantly bent. I contacted StewMac though their website with my concern and order number. The next business day they shipped a replacement gauge without failure. I was impressed with their commitment to customer satisfaction. Keep up the great work!

Huge Time Saver

By

Verified Buyer


I needed a couple new tools & decided to spend some extra money on "expensive" Stew Mac tools this time. They are all top notch. The beveled edge on the straight edge is great for precise, accurate truss rod inspections. The string action gauge is real handy. I still prefer feeler gauges for final checks, but the gauge is perfect for quick reference checks. Plus the assortment of various spacing rulers on the other edges are very handy for a wide range of measurements and is set up perfectly for guitar work. The understring radius gauges have proved to be the biggest time savers. They make it real easy to dial in the right string height at the saddle, eliminating all the second guessing & tedious minute adjustments. I've already used the set at least half a dozen times. Makes the work so much easier. Smart investment, I wish I had upgraded my tools earlier- I' ve already ordered more. Right on Stew Mac!
