Product Details

Installing, adjusting, and replacing Tune-o-matic guitar bridges and 'stop' tailpieces is daily work in busy guitar shops.

Our new Tune-o-Medic tools — the Bridge Jack, Post Tool and Stop Tailpiece Wrench — make the work faster and easier!

Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of all three tools.

Tune-o-Medic Bridge Jack
Adjust Tune-o-matic bridges quickly without loosening the strings — using the same tool Gibson used in their original Kalamazoo factory. Lift a Tune-o-matic with this jack and you can adjust the thumbscrews up or down freely, and without pressure from the strings you'll no longer damage the plating on the hardware.

With the Bridge Jack, you can even hold the guitar in the playing position and jack up the bridge with one hand while watching the 12th-fret action — when it looks right, spin the thumbwheel to hold that height.

The stainless steel Bridge Jack includes thick self-adhesive felt padding to help protect the guitar top. An extra pad and instructions are included.

Tune-o-Medic Post Tool
When Tune-o-matic bridge posts are bent, the bridge leans and intonation suffers. It becomes hard to turn the thumbwheels to set the bridge height, and the threaded posts may even be uncomfortable against the player's hand. The Post Tool makes it easy to remove, install or straighten these posts.

Interchangeable threaded brass inserts (6-32 thread for Gibson, and M4 x.75 thread for imports) snap into the Post Tool's handle. Simply thread the tool onto the post until it's flush against the thumbwheel, tighten the wheel against the tool, and hold the two together to turn the post for installation, removal, or height adjustment.

Instructions are included — we also include matching drill bits for correctly reinstalling the posts in new holes when needed.

Stop Tailpiece Wrench
The Stop Tailpiece Wrench has a thick screwdriver tip recessed into a smooth-walled socket that fits the 1/2" (12.70mm) diameter tailpiece stud snugly. The socket keeps the wrench centered, to protect the stud's plating and avoid accidents that could mar the guitar top. Made of tool steel, with a durable plastic handle. Our thanks to guitar techs Paul Verticchio and Jerry Barnstable for suggesting this tool.

Overall length is 7-3/4" (196.85mm). Inside diameter of the socket is 17/32" (13.49mm). This tool will work on tailpiece studs with 17/32" (13.49mm) maximum diameter.

Very happy with another Stewmac tool purchase. This tool is very effective when working on bridges - no more dodgy screwdrivers burring up posts or slipping and scratching the top of your guitar. Every time I have to buy some parts I get a tool to add to my small but growing tool kit to allow me to do basic maintenance and set-ups on my guitars. There isn't a decent guitar tech within cooee of where I live so I've started teaching myself how to do it with quite satisfying results. Stewmac is now my one-stop-shop. The shipping is a bit exce, but it gets from Ohio to FNQ on the other side of the world in less than a week. Very impressed all round.

I love this set, gotta have it if you don't want to scratch plating/ruin screw heads. The bridge jack is a nice thick size of steel.
