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) Also sold separately
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 Also sold separately
Machined for fanatic accuracy (to ±.0015" per foot)! Use it to check neck relief and evaluate truss rod adjustments.

Understring Radius Gauges Also sold separately
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.

After ordering these tools and trying them out in my new shop I immediately started ordering more of your tools for all my guitar work as I found the precision and accuracy was just what I needed for fast and precise work. Thank you StuMac!

Very pleased with this purchase. Helps cut down on the second-guessing while doing setups on my own guitars. It's going to save me a lot of money in the future.

Just received my setup kit, and found it to be a very nice kit. Everything is precision made and well thought out. Had my bass checked over, and it now plays much better than before. Will recommend it to other players!

This kit is a high quality kit that is worth every penny! Either you do setups once a while or every day this is great tools that makes the job a lot easier! The Straightedge is also a great tool for a lot of other things as well.

The radius gauges are not as helpful or necessary as I first thought, but the straight edge and depth gauges are perfect and all are very high quality.

Great Setup Kit and company. Ordered on Sunday and arrived here in Canada on Tuesday! Never been much for setting relief by sighting down the neck. Within a couple of minutes of having the straightedge I was able to make the required adjustment with confidence. Even better was the improved playability of the neck. Just a minor tweak, but it made a huge improvement. I just wish I hadn't procrastinated so long.

I received the kit and used it right away. The string action tool is great, a quick visual sighting without squinting! The straightedge is the perfect length. All made of top notch quality materials.
