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.

Also available in metric: Basic Setup Kit - Metric

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.

I spend quite a bit of money maintaining my guitars. I figure it’s time to learn how to do it myself. And this kit and a digital caliper is a start.

I have a 2004 Fender American Jazz Bass and a 1974 Precision Bass. Both had neck bowing issues. I was able straighten both necks, set the intonation, and strung height. Both play like lightening now. SWEET.. the online videos were a great help....thanks Dan!
