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.

They do what they're supposed to

Not much to say, they're pickup height clearance gauges. They do exactly what they're built for.

much easier

So much easier, even to use as a starting or reference point and then fine tuning pickup height from there. Not magnetic makes a huge difference. Had to use a 6 inch metal ruler previously.

Just wish they'd somehow indicated sizes (they are a bit thin, maybe a metal tab added to where they attach to keyring or something, I don't know) and included suggestions, like a list of which size to use with what pickups.

Still really handy though.

I was able to adjust my Stratocaster pickups quickly and accurately with these gauges. After using this, you can fine tune from there.
