Not everything, but very close

I would've preferred a fret puller to cutters and over-string radius gauges to under; otherwise pretty rock solid.

Guitar shop starter kit

By

Verified Buyer


This is a good basic kit for setups and nut making. I wish it included the neck jig or straight edge with the string slots and both crowning files for frets.Make it a real bargain and throw in one of those three.

A pretty good start....

This kit is well worth the $$$, if you have it. Within minutes of opening the box I was well on my way to making my 78 LP Goldtop play like butta using the straightedge, feeler gauges, fret rocker, understring radius gauges and a few files.

Based on my initial experience, perhaps a Gibson and Fender truss rod wrench should be included. All the tools seem well made but you can tell right away that the numbers on the files will rub away eventually. I'm going to add numbers to my file handles with a label maker.

Nice kit

By

Verified Buyer


I have used most of these tools and they haven't let me down. It would be nice if they included a 24" straight edge instead of a 18" though.

Great Beginnings

I couldn't top the value of this starter kit adding individually to my shopping cart. The calipers , booklet and especially the savings couldn't be ignored! Suitable items for the beginner repair guy.

Great Kit

By

Verified Buyer


This is a great kit. I wanted some tools to make a guitar after doing some repairs on electric and accoustics. The Fretwork booklet and info sheets are full of great information. The Vise is really good for holding nuts and bridge pieces without making marks. The files and free caliper have already been noticed by guitar makers. All the tools deserve good reviews


Really good value for money

The best start!

I haven't bought this package but own all of the components of it, which are the essentials for any competent guitar servicer. Great price. Anything else you might need is more of a case-by-case basis or specializing in specific kinds of jobs.
