Precision Straightedges

About This Item

For accurate fretting and neck evaluation.
We make our Precision Straightedges specifically for checking neck straightness and relief, evaluating truss rod adjustments, and pinpointing high or low frets. Available in four lengths, for working on any fretted instrument, from mandolins to guitars to basses.

The narrow beveled edge allows easy and accurate viewing of the gap between the edge and the surface being checked. Made of durable stainless steel with a satin finish for easy marking with a pencil, each straightedge is precision-machined for accuracy to ±.0015" per foot.

These straightedges are also ideal for laying out projects on wood or paper, and for setting up table saws, jointers and other shop equipment.

Made from surgical stainless steel, hardened and tempered for lasting accuracy.

#3850 18" Precision Straightedge is part of our Basic Setup Kit.

For acoustic guitars, our Neck Set Gauge is designed to attach to the #3799 24" Precision Straightedge.

Very well made. The tapered edge makes it easy to see the frets.

I have been replacing some things for my guitar repair shop that I did not have after changing to my own shop from a great music store gig after many years. These Straightedges are great like most everything from StewMac!

The Perfect Tool For The Job.

I had been looking at straight edges costing twice as much, which were much more then I needed. When StewMac popped up I thought that name sounds familiar. Yeah, Scott's Bass Lessons recommended. Perfectly designed for what I needed for setting the bow in the neck of my bass. And at a reasonable price. And of course coming from a Luthier Supply house it would be well done. Thanks folks for making Bonnie Sing!!

Used a 12" square to check relief for years. So glad I decided to give this a try. It's much more accurate because it spans all of the frets on the fretboard. Also useful for checking fret height on all of them at once.

High price but you get what you paid for!

I've tried buying lower priced straightedges and rulers. They just didn't do the job well if at all. I bought the 18 inch straightedge and love using it. Nice sturdy weight and thickness. Nice beveled edge, very precise. I like using this to check neck relief between the D and G strings. Brings a whole new meaning to precision reading.

Get the 18 inch for electric guitars.

The 18 inch will perfectly cover all of the frets on a fender scale. This is a must to get your neck perfectly straight before you start leveling frets for a full dressing. Go with the 12 inch for an acoustic guitar. These straightedges are well built.
