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.

I have had a squier affinity tele for 6 years and it just felt like it was missing something. For $150 I knew it wasn't going to play perfect but I still wanted more and this kit did everything I needed! I ordered on a Tuesday and it was waiting for me on Thursday! I love how easy to use and read the action and radius gauges are! I never knew how simple it was to set up my own guitar until now! This guitar now plays real close to my fender Nashville deluxe!

This is my first purchase of tools specifically for guitar maintenance and I am very impressed with the tool quality and the shopping experience at StewMac.
