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.

good for what it is

Have only used it a few times, but seems to be good. Have nothing to compare it with however. I believe if you have a need, it is worth the purchase.

No more eyeballing the curve

Finally, a way to achieve a perfect match at the bridge to the curve of the neck. Easy and accurate! What a time saver!

great gauges!!

Wow, these understring radius gauges are great! No more guessing, bang on bridge AND pup adjustments! Setup my Strat, 330/Rickenbacker AND my 5122 Gretsch. Thanks for the fast and courteous delivery too.

Understring radius gauges

Ingeniously simple, this tool is a money maker for any tech. They almost take the thought out of setting bridge action. These help you do better work, faster.
