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.

This kit will save you countless hours and guessing to help set up your instrument perfectly. Once you use it you'll also save yourself the expense and time away from your instrument by not having to send it out for set up. Great quality materials.

BASIC SET UP KIT

This kit is what I needed to help Me re-do a old 89 Les Paul..The string gauge worked great, it also served as a high fret buzz locator..plus when I added the new bridge, I uses ark gauge to reset the height adjustment at the bridge, to have good starting point how to set up the new one, when I set the intonation.. The 18 straight edge, told Me right away, the neck needed to be adjusted to relieve some slight bow.. I think anyone who has guitars, needs this kit... It help Me put some new life back in this old guitar, ..

Very pleased with this purchase. Helps cut down on the second-guessing while doing setups on my own guitars. It's going to save me a lot of money in the future.

Just received my setup kit, and found it to be a very nice kit. Everything is precision made and well thought out. Had my bass checked over, and it now plays much better than before. Will recommend it to other players!
