Granted, the Guitar Shop Starter Kit may be a little pricy, but I do believe it has the appropriate selection of quality tools to jump start your shop. Worth every penny in my opinion!

Ok but expensive

The same indisputable quality but inmho not a proper price: a must-have or unavoidable fee?

Outstanding value!

I have used every tool in this set. The quality is absolutely top notch. To date this set has been used to turn seven "lost cause" guitars to excellent players.

I've lost count of the guitars I've set up quickly and accurately. What used to be a painfully slow process of trial and error has become, relatively quick, easy and enjoyable.

Excelent tools but...

Quality tools, can tell, however I keep having the feeling that it is too expensive for what you get... I hope that the products will pay themselves overtime.

This is a well thought out starter kit. Everything feels solid and well made. The Action Gauge is easy to use. However, if you plan on using any of the other tools using dial-gauges, be aware they measure in 1/1000th of an inch increments.

Hi to all. Well just got my kit today very happy with it, look out guitars here I come. postage was quicker than I expected, could have fitted more tools in the box. Will be buying more tools next time and soon so as not to waste space in the next shipment. Have been wanting a shop like this for ever,thank heavens for the Internet

Vary expensive for what you get;A small saw,plastic hamer,cuple files,pair of pliers,small vice & a straight edge?? For the money you charge, thats bad.

A great intro.

This doesn't come cheap, but as the saying goes, "Buy Cheap, Pay Dear". I have used every tool in the kit on my first couple of fret jobs and set-ups, and have found them invaluable to complete the work; and for my first attempts, they came out very well. Saddles and nuts are a sinch with the tools included. It's a great start, especially if like me, you had two screw-drivers and a file as the only tools to your name. I would have preferred an extra couple of tools thrown in such as notched straight-edge and radius gauges, but then again I did get a digital-caliper set for free. If your budget stretches to it, you won't go far wrong with this starter set.

A great start

My starter kit arrived complete and as advertised. Two guitars, a mandolin, and an ukulele later the kit has been very valuable already.

Great start, but......

I think this a great way to start, however I feel that for what you get the price is a little bit much.
