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.

Basic Setup Kit

Excellent tool set to have for checking your setup when you change string sets. Usually when swapping equal sizes there is no issue. But if you change sizes or even change material or manufacturer you need to throw an eyeball on neck curvature. The straightedge makes a pretty good personal protection device when your're not using it for precision measurements. The radius gauges stay home.

I know , you say I can do a setup without this kit .Yes you can . But, time is money in a shop. It saves time and eliminates some guesswork . Indespensable to a pro repairman . Kudos to Stew-Mac .

A friend of mine (a pro luthier) suggested to try the basic setup kit just to keep my guitars in shape and ready to gig every day and after every change of season. A must have for pro guitar players (like me), for amateurs and students too. Thank you StewMac!

A must have for every Drummer....Oppps  Guitarist

I'm a drummer.....and you know what that means...If I can use these things then any body could use them.

All joking aside. These tools seem swiss built. Super straight and accurate. The 18" straight edge is thick and can't be bent. Once i figured out the way to use them I set all six of my babies.

One thing to keep in mind.
These things aren't magic. One only increases their functions with use.
