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.

 High quality tools

Very high quality! It’s always worth spending money on good tools you will use. Owning several guitars now it would cost a lot of money to have all my instruments worked on, especially if fret work is involved. In the long run I will save a little $ and learn some cool new skills.

I’m not a luthier, but I wanted to buy the tools necessary to setup my own guitars. This kit is perfect and cost around what 1 pro setup would cost you.

I learned how my guitar works with these tools and they save me the time and hassle of shipping it off for repair. It was easy too!

The Right Tools Make All The Difference!

By

Verified Buyer


For decades I’ve adjusted my guitars by eyeballing and applying a “close enough” philosophy. The basic set up kit shamed me for such a poor practice! My guitars play like new! I’m embarrassed. I thought I was saving money skimping on the basics. Don’t make my mistake. If you get that feeling your guitar isn’t playing right, get this kit. It really helps!

I wish i had this sooner. All my guitars needed some tweaking. This set gets the job done! My axes were playing nice and fast. My fingers slide and dance across the strings.

Perfect set up tools

I used to set up my own guitars until I moved. All my set up tools were lost in the move as well as some of my other tools. I set up my guitar on Friday night, I got the set up tools on Wednesday night, and it plays great.
