Understring Radius Gauges

About This Item

Fast, accurate bridge saddle adjustment.
Each of these unique gauges has an accurately radiused arc on both the top and bottom surfaces, and is shaped to fit easily under the strings.

Use the bottom curvature to determine your fretboard radius, and the matching top curvature becomes a reference for setting string saddle heights for best playability.

Low profile fits tight spots. The slim shape of our understring gauges allow you to read the fretboard radius even with the strings on! This is also handy for matching pickup polepiece heights to the arc of the strings. And setting bridge saddles is easier than ever.

The set of 9 gauges includes:
7-1/4", 9-1/2", 10", 12", 14", 15", 16", 17" and 20" radii.

Standard width 6-string guitars and most 4-string basses—spans a string spread up to 2-5/8" (66.68mm).

Extra-wide covers string spreads up to 3-3/4" (95.25mm)—enough for 4-string, 5-string, and many 6-string basses. They'll also handle 7-string and 8-string guitars.

Stainless steel.

great!

Bought these because I needed to do my own setups. They work great. Had two guitars that were so out of whack, I laughed when I set the gauge on them! Now they are in line with the neck radius and play at least 75% better than before.

Excellent quality, great for checking radius on fret board, saddle and pickup screw posts. Don't bother with cheap knock offs, you get what you pay for.

The best of all radius gauges

By

Awesome gauges for measuring a instruments radius. These are the only radius gauges I'll ever need. They can measure over and under strings. They help radius polepieces in pickups. Definitely a must have for any serious tech.

I’m a professional musician, not a pro luthier. But,
With the help of precision tools and tutorials on stewmac, I’m confident enough to do some of this work myself.
This saves me money, and makes me happy.
I’m pleasantly surprised at what I’m learning to do.
Thanks

I have 25 Guitars and not a one of them was set up correctly until I purchased these Radius Gauges . These Tools make it so easy to set the Action on your guitar I'm ashamed it took this long for me to buy them . My Guitars Play Better , Sound Better and I'm so proud of them when Friends pick them up and play them , they always ask , "Who Set Your Guitar Up ?" Ha!Ha! ME ! Money Well Spent !

Perfect for Setting the Radius of the Strings

By

This is another must-have tool if you want to do the job right in setting up the action of a guitar. It comes with nine gauges ranging from a 20 inch radius down to a 7.25 inch radius. Using the gauge appropriate for the guitar being worked on, the tool easily fits under the strings allowing you to accurately adjust the saddles for the correct string curvature to achieve the lowest possible action. Did I say that this is another must-have tool? Thanks StewMac!
