Yes, they seem a little expensive, but buy one, try it, and I guarantee you'll buy more. Durable and precise and as a bonus, the graduations start precisely from one end so it works as a height gauge and is exactly 6 inches long. Cheaper ones start away from the end so that it doesn't need to be made with the same precision. Always in my pocket.
Hard to find these in the hardware store that got down to 1/64 scale.
Since i'm not from the US of A i'm not used to your inches, I like my millimeters better. Since i went and bought myself a stewmac D-kit and everything is measured in inches (fractions of inches at that) i found this very valuable. Inches on one side and mm on the other.
A definite and absolute requirement if you setup guitars. Should have gotten it years ago.
Must have tool for string instrument players. Helps on acoustics to find right action, tone and if nut or saddle needs work. Should be electric guitar case mandate!
I got tired of eyeballing stuff. My luthier suggested this. Very, very happy - can now set guitars up to factory spec without guesswork, then tweak as I see fit.
I really like this rule. I couldn't find one showing the dimensions this one does anywhere locally. thanks
I recently tackeled setting my guitar up (tuning, intonation, matching radius of saddles to fretboard, setting string vs. spring tension, and floating the standard Fender bridge by 1 whole tone). I used this particular steel ruler during the process above for setting Hi/Lo E-string heights above the fretboard and then distance between strings and standard single-coil pickups. Not the easiest to do with my bi-focals, but I managed to read the markings for 64ths and was quite satisfied with the end results. The ruler worked good for me and will be used for many more setups I expect.
I use this rule for everything, don't know how I got along without it.
Or two or three, these are incredibly helpful and I probably use this more than any other one tool. It's really easy to think you can live without one, but trust me they come in real handy.
