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 too!

Includes

String Action Gauge 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. (0670-M Metric in International set)

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.

It is just what it says, a basic set up kit. Basically 3 important tools. The quality of the items are top notch, very nice workmanship with the machining. The action gauge is nice and easy to use.

Great tools for shop or house

These tools allowed me to do a perfect (for me) set up on an old beater guitar that I decided to use as a test for me to straighten the neck, level & polish the frets and set up for 9's with PU changes. Now I have a guitar that plays as good as my PRS or Shecter. What a great feeling of accomplishment.

Great set for basic guitar maintenance

By

Verified Buyer


I have been playing electric guitar on and off for over 20 years. I always took good care of my instruments but was reluctant to bring them to one of the local big box music stores for a setup and really didn't know how to find a good independent luthier. The contents of the kit (including the instructions) were perfect for me. I was able to adjust my neck/fret board relief using the 18 inch straight edge and dial in the string height with the string action gauge. The tools work on tune-o-matic style fixed bridge setups as well as floating/tremolo setups. The instruments are much more playable now after being properly adjusted, I wish I had done this years ago.

I'm very happy with this kit. I have several guitars and have been using feeler gauges to set them up. I was able to see the variations in setup when I used this kit and setup all my guitars equally. A must have whether you setup your own guitars or for someone else.

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

Really good place to get started, owning my own setup. Pricey, but most accurate. Instructions are very good.
