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.

Great tools

I've set up a couple of guitars after I got this, the straightedge is good and the string height gauge but I haven't really used the understring radious gauges. The instructions are ok but they don't say anything about string height.

This setup kit is very cool. I use the stuff all the time. Not only in setting up guitars but building.

A Good Investment For My Collection

I purchased the basic setup kit and the essential nut making kit to update several older (cheaper) acoustic guitars that I own. Being a lefty, there are not many pre-shaped parts available to update them plus some of those setups were fair at best. With these high quality StewMac kits along with a few of my own hand tools, I can make nuts or saddles and do setups on my own stuff anytime. It also gives you the option to experiment with your setups to get them exactly like you want. I highly recommend these kits.

The Right Tool for First Time Fretters

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I ordered this tool kit when conducting my first refret job. I was nervous, but using these tools and instructions I was able to properly install, dress, and level frets on a strat. Don't try to cut corners by ordering the tools separately, you will need everything here!

I am not a luthier and I just wanted to setup my electric guitars. And with these tools it was piece of cake. Thank You!
