Archtop Guitar Helping Hand

About This Item

A simple design that works
The Helping Hand offers sturdy support for lifting pots, switches, and jacks into the holes of an archtop or semi-hollowbody guitar.

Fishing a volume pot out of a hollowbody guitar is tricky and time-consuming. Installing them can be even trickier. This tool makes easy work of a tedious job.

"I'm now wiring up f-hole instruments in record time!"
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Skip the needle-nose pliers, fishing line, and soda straws and give yourself a Helping Hand! Our thanks to luthier David Costner for inspiring this handy tool.

11-3/4" (298mm) long.

Copper-plated steel.

Handy tool for it's intended purpose. You could make one out of household electrical wire... or even a coat hanger... but the StewMac version is inexpensive and looks good.

Simple, but effective.

This was my first time doing electronics on a semi-hollow. Looking back on the project, it's hard to imagine doing it without this basic tool. It's probably something you could rig up fairly easily with a metal clothes hanger, but the price is right for how helpful it is with placing electric components. Avoid pulling your hair out. Purchase this little doohickey.

Used to use string or thread to pull the parts up and tighten them on hollow body builds! This is a must have item!

Perfect for hollow body electronics replacement

I bought TV Jones Brian Setzer pickups for my Tennessee Rose. TV Jones offers a tubing solution that does not work because the routed holes are too small. Don't even bother. This is the tool you need for any hollow body electronics project. If you own a guitar that does not have cavity access to the electronics this tool is a must. Buy two just in case! Awesome!

I needed something to hold an endoscope so that I could position it inside a guitar to see there were any internal problems so taped it to this tool an I can see all bracings etc..

Just picked one of these up after failing miserably at rewiring my 68 Silvertone 1485. This tool made installing the pots and jack a breeze.
