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.

A cool tool to have

From the start I thought I would have to buy more radius gauges. But when I opened the package to see that the set included all the radius's I would need. I was happy with the purchase I made. You do need to have good lighting to make full use of these gauges. As you do with any precision tool. But in all the was a purchase well worth the money.

Understring radius gauges, 5 stars!!!

I bought these for my shop after using the older, big square radius gauges. I had to order a bunch of supplies for my shop so I decided to get these as they looked like a great product. They are. They get used on every job and are so easy to use above and below the strings. I highly, highly recommend them.
