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.

Set of 9 now includes new 17" radius for Ibanez guitars!

Find your fretboard radius, and set your bridge saddles to match. They're handy for matching pickup polepiece heights to the arc of the strings, too. Precision laser-cut from .050" stainless steel.

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

They'll work for string spreads and fingerboards up to 2-5/8" (66.68mm) wide.

Money saver and education tool !

I have always went to a music store to have my guitars set up, because I didn't have the proper tools. Stew Mac has now allowed me to afford my own tools and do my own work, by myself. I set up a 1985 Strat by following on line instructions and experimenting with the guitar and tools for about an hour. I am happy and pleased with my purchase from Stew Mac and would suggest any guitar player who is getting into building get a set of gauges for them selves. Jim Nash

Easy As Pie

The radius gauges are a god send. Once in place, just adjust the saddle level where you want it using the gauge as the reference point and lay the string on it. You're Done.... With the tools and gauges that I bought I figure I'm saving $40.00 per guitar (I have 7) per set up every year or so - more money to buy more guitars.... See what I mean???? kcbuck, Granbury, TX
