Pickup Clearance Gauges

About This Item

Simple and fast way to consistently set the gap between strings and pickups.

Clever time-saver: Fret a string at the last fret, slide a gauge under it, and raise the pickup until the polepiece touches the gauge. 1/32", 1/16", 3/32" and 1/8" thicknesses span nearly all the pro player specs in Dan Erlewine's book, How to Make Your Electric Guitar Play Great.

Made of non-magnetic brass, more practical than steel rulers or feeler gauges. Set of 4.

Thanks to guitar tech Dirk Wacker for developing this tool.

These gauges make getting an accurate read much easier than trying to read a ruler. A real time saver!

Pickup clearance gauge 5 stars !

Well figured I'd give these a try and guess what , just the tiny difference in pickup height made a huge difference in my guitar sound, it never sounded better.. worth every cent. something so simple..my Gibson 333 sang like a bird all night !

Good but could be better

Love these little brass things!

However... I didn't see a metric option..
Aaaand... They don't come with any indication of how thick they are.
Aaaaaand... Only four of them.

How about a set of four with an angle at each end. That would give you eight to measure with. A flat part in the middle could have the gauges stamped on it. Or at least a flat part at/near the top with the gauge on.


But as I said up top I really like them!

Although pickup height is somewhat of a personal preference, these gauges will get you to a good starting point very quickly. I love that they are non magnetic and will not stick to your pickups and or covers. Overall a nice addition to your guitar workbench.

Makes life a breeze adjusting pickups.
Wish I had a set years ago.
They will get you into range fast for that final preference adjustment.

Useful everyday tool + one improvement suggestion

By

Verified Buyer


A useful everyday tool. It can also be used as a string action gauge.
Improvement suggestion : adding a 5/64" gauge would make the set more complete.
