Precision Straightedges

About This Item

For accurate fretting and neck evaluation.
We make our Precision Straightedges specifically for checking neck straightness and relief, evaluating truss rod adjustments, and pinpointing high or low frets. Available in four lengths, for working on any fretted instrument, from mandolins to guitars to basses.

The narrow beveled edge allows easy and accurate viewing of the gap between the edge and the surface being checked. Made of durable stainless steel with a satin finish for easy marking with a pencil, each straightedge is precision-machined for accuracy to ±.0015" per foot.

These straightedges are also ideal for laying out projects on wood or paper, and for setting up table saws, jointers and other shop equipment.

Made from surgical stainless steel, hardened and tempered for lasting accuracy.

#3850 18" Precision Straightedge is part of our Basic Setup Kit.

For acoustic guitars, our Neck Set Gauge is designed to attach to the #3799 24" Precision Straightedge.

To be honest, I wasn't sure about paying such a high price for a straight edge, but I'm glad I finally did! This is probably THE most used piece of equipment in my process. It's invaluable to know that what your straight edge says is straight IS straight. Its just heavy enough, and the beveled edge makes it easier to mark with precision when needed (its always needed) A+

Very useful tool

I thought the necks on several guitars were pretty straight, however, using the straight edge I was surprised at the additional tuning that could be done to really straighten them out.

Yep - It's straight, alright...

I decided it's time to stop relying on my (failing) eyesight trying to check neck relief by pressing strings and purchased the 18" straightedge. Guess what? It's really straight! I spent the first 30 minutes going around the house to see what else is straight (quite a few countertops, etc.), but I have to admit that being able to check relief with the guitar in the correct position is absolutely better than any other method.

Well worth the expense.

A lot of people getting into Guitar Lutherie may underestimate the effectiveness of this tool but it is premium quality with absolute precision. I purchased the 8" precision straightedge and it is extremely effective for all of my fretting and leveling projects.
