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.

Purchased to replace some older tools

As always, StewMac’s tools are on point! I purchased this set to replace some older tools I had been using and this set is far superior. I highly recommend this set.

Great to get you going!

I decided to get this kit so I could learn, and do my own set-ups. Given the extra time on my hands during the Covid-19 crisis, and the limited availability of a repair person at the local guitar shop, why not learn to do it myself? With this kit and some basic tools I already had, I was in business. I found that doing my own set-up was not that much of a mystery, and it has opened the door for me to take on some even more challenging jobs and adjustments tp my guitars.

One tool every guitarist should own

If you own a shop and you don't have this tool you are wasting time on set ups, thought these were overpriced but was hired to work on a musical with 8 guitars so I took the plunge, changed my mind after the first set up, I checked one of my own guitars and found I had it set up properly but I had to tweak it several times to get it right, checking with these tools gave me instant feedback to know it was right, whether you do your own set ups or do it for a living this set is a great investment

After all these years....

I’m 52 and playing since I was 16, I thought it was (overdue) time to do my own basic setups. While my usual tech friend does a good job. It gets expensive and once I figured out some basics like truss rod adjustments to name one example. It’s actually making my guitars more in tune and play like butter! Thanks

Basic Guitar Setuo Kit

I'm no luthier but I like to know if my guitar is out of wack and this set helps with that. Good quality set. I suggest getting one just in case and of course, if you do repairs and set ups, it's a must.

Title says it all. Product arrived well packaged and I have used it to set up several guitars. Only other thing I would recommend is a set of automotive feeler gauges.

I am so glad I purchased the "Basic Setup Kit". I bought this kit to help me with general setup needs and it does this and so much more (i.e. it saves me time and money because I don't have to visit my guitar tech for minor adjustments). I highly recommend this purchasing this Kit.

The Best Tools!

These tools showed up and I've never felt more confident in my work on my guitars. I know when they are straight and I know when the strings are aligned. These are totally worth it!

These three tools are a must. They helped me make some good decisions on the set up and needed adjustments for my guitars.
The quality is top shelf.
