A great set of gauges to check string heights are aligned to the fretboard radius which I note for ever guitar I setup. I am not a luthier, just an enthusiastic amateur. I like to do my own setups as the difference it makes to the playability of any guitar is huge. Anything that makes the job easier and more precise is appreciated.
These are great for when a customer comes in and says they have a certain radius and swear by it. In just a few seconds you can show them what's really up not only with their fret radius but you can also easily check to see if their saddle radius has been set correctly.
It took just a few minutes to set up the bridge with the understring radius gauges. I just needed to tweak a few things to adjust to my particular neck and I was playing in under 15 minutes. These gauges are a must for anyone seriously building guitars.
I just got my Understring radius gauges and I made adjustments to a customer’s guitar using them. I must admit that I never been able to do the job as fast accurately with without this tool. I really recommend the Understring radius gauges, it’s a great tool! Thanks’ to Stew Mac and their R&D department.
What a great product! Wish I'd gotten some ages ago! They just arrived and I immediately used them to set up my '62 Hot Rod Strat - 9.5" radius - feels and plays better than ever - brilliant!
Very good and usefull tools. And not expensive at all. A very good idea.
i bought the set to help me with setups...get them you wont regret it!!
These are well made and accurate. Would recommend.
I bought these Under String Radius Gauges as I thought they would minimise the amount of tools you need, as you can use them to set up your under string height, your pickup pole piece height and also to check the radius of the fret board, that’s exactly what they do. They are very high quality tools and are indispensable, as I have always set my string height using a precision rule by eye, but I was amazed when using these gauges to check out the string height on my guitars as I found they were all well out.
I have adjusted my favourite strat and the difference in the playability is remarkably more smoother and more comfortable, I will be using these gauges to set up all my guitars with confidence, I highly recommended these gauges as an essential tool.
My string radius finally FEELS right. Do yourself a favor!
