Your pliers WILL mar the nut — this is a much safer tool, with adjustable chuck-style jaws for a good non-slip grip. Thanks to the deep socket, you won't even have to remove the switch knob. Made of sturdy steel with durable plastic handle.

The right tool

Having the right tool for the job sure saves me a lot of aggrivation. Not to mention ... isn't as likely to cause damage to expensive guitars right where you would see it the most.

MUCH better than pliers - believe me.

Okay, you finally got it tight enough but the switch plate says Treble sideways - urgh! No more of that nonsense for me because those problems are a thing of the past with this wrench. Just one slip of the needle nose pliers across your new cherry burst LP and you'll kick yourself for not ordering one of these.

Not too impressed

This thing is a nut grinder. You have to clamp it extremely tight or it slips. I hunted down a Gotoh switch that was all black, including the nut, so that it would match the rest of my hardware. Needless to say, the nut is not all black anymore because of this thing.

Finally ... the right tool.

I have been removing and tightening Les Paul/Gibson pickup selector switches for 30 years. Never had the right tool and created my share of scratches, dings and unnecessary repair work. Of course StewMac would be the ones to come up with the proper tool. Great design ... holds steady, does the job, makes life easier and even looks good. Thanks Guys ... this is a must have tool.

No scratches anymore!

My friends told me "you don't need it". Well, they were wrong. Not needed for cheap Chinese knockoffs, but you don't want to change a custom art Gibson or a PRS private stock switch without it... Unless you want to redo the varnish!

Good Wrench

This is a good knurled nut wrench for 5/8" size knurled nuts. It is too large for 1/2" knurled nuts. It is made for the larger spaced knurls as on switchcraft style toggle switches and simular styles where the knurls are like coarse threads. One reviewer shows it being used on HP test equipment. It is not the right size for those nuts as the knurls are more like fine threads. Since it doesn't fit my intended use, but is a good wrench, I only give it 4 stars.

Not the best choice for hollowbodies

This wrench works great for tightening toggle switches. However, if you don't have access to the back side of the switch - like in a hollowbody, it can twist a bit when you're tightening. This results in some trial and error, especially with a Gretsch, where you want to align multiple switches.
