Precision Notched Straightedge

About This Item

A StewMac Original, the Precision Notched Straightedge allows you to accurately check the flatness of your fingerboard, quickly measure neck relief, locate problem areas, and determine if truss rod adjustments are necessary.

2-in-1 tool: Not only is it great for checking the flatness of your fingerboard but you can also use it to check your fret leveling by placing it directly on top of the frets.

Made in the USA of German/Austrian stainless steel. You won't find this level of quality with cheap knockoffs!

Each of our straightedges go through a rigorous 13-step manufacturing process that guarantees accuracy to +/- .0015" per foot.

These straightedges are extremely precise, heavy duty, and designed to handle a lifetime of use in your shop. Before each one gets shipped, it's personally inspected before leaving the factory.

Machined from ultra-high-grade stainless steel, our StewMac Notched Straightedge won't bend or dent as easily as the aluminum straightedges on the market. The satin finish allows you to mark it with a pencil in order to make notes or to compare one guitar’s setup to another.

  • Guaranteed accuracy to +/- .0015" per foot
  • 1/8" thick 420 German/Austrian stainless steel
  • Individually inspected to ensure precise tolerances
  • Proudly made in Ohio, USA

Must-have for anyone wanting to set up their bass themselves

By

Verified Buyer


My only regret is only bought a straightedge 20 years ago when I bought my first bass guitar.
With the String action Gauge, and after having watched the StewMac videos on trust rod and action setup I how now set up my MusicMan Stingray better than its ever been since I bought it

The only flaw here is that the signs 'long scale', 'short scale', are mixed up, otherwise everything is good.
This is the ultimate 3 in 1 tool. You can use it as a notched straight edge, straight edge, and If you sand off the stewmac logo as I did, you can use it as levelling beam!
If you want to buy 1 pricy stewmac tool, I'd buy this one.

This is where it all starts folks when you are setting up or making seasonal neck adjustments.
Guitar Techs are getting hard to come by, plus it's fun to learn how to do this yourself, you don't need to take guitar out somewhere.
Eyeballing is ok but this is the real way to do it, plus you can use it on different scale necks, I was able to correct my custom Warmoth (Gibson scale) along with my fender and Ibanez all in an afternoon.

Just what the doctor ordered

I was using luthier tools that tried to imitate this straightedge, but when I finally got this one, I threw the others in the trash. It's worth it to be sure that you have a flat fretboard.

I purchased this tool to check a couple of personal use guitars I am attempting to rebuild. At the time of ordering it I thought it was expensive! After receiving it, I was very impressed at the quality of the tool! After using it, I found it is worth every penny! No doubt one of the best tools for the money!
