Basic Setup Kit

About This Item

Make any guitar play better.

We're often asked to recommend "must-have" tools for setting up guitars. So we've made it easy: the Basic Setup Kit features our most popular setup tools. These are the same super-accurate, high quality steel setup tools that professional repair shops depend on.

Also available in metric: Basic Setup Kit - Metric

Includes

String Action Gauge (inches) Also sold separately
The fastest way to measure the height of strings, nuts, saddles and pickup polepieces. Designed for stringed instrument work, it's much faster to use than any ruler.

18" Precision Straightedge Also sold separately
Machined for fanatic accuracy (to ±.0015" per foot)! Use it to check neck relief and evaluate truss rod adjustments.

Understring Radius Gauges Also sold separately
A big help for matching bridge saddle heights to the fretboard curvature, for easier playability. Accurately laser-cut from stainless steel, the set includes 9 different fretboard radii.

Free Instructions : Erick Coleman walks you through basic setup instructions to have your guitar playing great in no time.



Truss rod adjustment is an important part of guitar setup, too.
Our Truss Rod Wrench Set has the tool you need.

Seems to be well made. I haven't used it much, but what I have done with it was a pleasure. Nicely made and should save me money, time and aggravation in the long run.

Now I need a magnifier!

By

Verified Buyer


These tools are great and are specially made for guitar adjustments and measurements. Now my guitars can be set up here at home, rather than traveling 90 minutes to my luthier. Realizing my eyes can't see the measurements, a magnifier is next on the list!

Thanks Stew Mac and Dan E

Much nicer than the photos show. These are thick and built for years of service. The markings are easy to read. Definitely worth the price.

Always wanted this!

I always wanted this to check my guitars. I looked at cheaper sets on other sites but you know what you get that way. JUNK! This set is excellent and the gauges work so well and fit under the strings. The straightedge is dead straight, no compromise. String gauge is easy to read. Excellent stuff well worth the money as usual!!
