Precision Straightedges

About This Item

For accurate fretting and neck evaluation.
We make our Precision Straightedges specifically for checking neck straightness and relief, evaluating truss rod adjustments, and pinpointing high or low frets. Available in four lengths, for working on any fretted instrument, from mandolins to guitars to basses.

The narrow beveled edge allows easy and accurate viewing of the gap between the edge and the surface being checked. Made of durable stainless steel with a satin finish for easy marking with a pencil, each straightedge is precision-machined for accuracy to ±.0015" per foot.

These straightedges are also ideal for laying out projects on wood or paper, and for setting up table saws, jointers and other shop equipment.

Made from surgical stainless steel, hardened and tempered for lasting accuracy.

#3850 18" Precision Straightedge is part of our Basic Setup Kit.

For acoustic guitars, our Neck Set Gauge is designed to attach to the #3799 24" Precision Straightedge.

No fretjob without it

No flimsy straight edge 

By

It's a very quality stright edge. Like the beveled side. When I was trying to decide which straight edge to purchase, the 18"or the 24" I should have started with the 18". 24" is a too long for guitars. But it will work out. These stright edges are quite expensive. But you get what you pay for. I will purchase the 18" soon.

A well made precision tool

Seems expensive for a piece of metal with no markings but worth every penny if you want a perfect setup for your axe. It is a well made precision tool.

It makes all the difference

By

You can uses the strings to check the neck, but until you use one of these straight edges you won't know how much difference they can make; if you have adjustable neck, then these straight edges will make adjusting more understandable and easier...

Used to set-up my new Martin D-41. Now it plays as good as it looks and sounds. Love Stew-Mac.

Improved version.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Just got the latest version of this straight edge. It thicker and heavier than the previous version, which was fine, but I prefer the extra weight. Accurate as ever. A must for any serious set-up.
