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.

Makes setups a breeze!

By

Verified Buyer


This kit includes all the basic tools needed to perform the adjustments needed to make a guitar play great. The straight edge makes adjusting neck relief a breeze. I no longer have to wonder if my feeler gauge is causing my string to move and giving me a faulty measurement. Now the feeler gauge either fits or doesn’t. The radius gauges provide incredible use when adjusting bridges that have individual string heights like many fender bridges. I can now measure the radius of my fingerboard and accurately set my relative string heights to match the radius. And the precision ruler makes setting your action a breeze, as well as offering precision measurements for many other parts of the guitar. If you own several guitars, and want to save some money and learn how to maintain your instruments: purchase this kit.

Received on time. Perfect for setting up your own guitar for lowest action without buzzing. Teaches you a lot about the straightness of your fret board by sliding the ruler up and down without bumping down when moving past any of the frets. Very satisfied. Thank you.

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.
