Product Description

Are flexibility, precision & quality in a 'guitar string action gauge' important to you ?

As far as setups go, your answer will hopefully be YES! Luckily, all bases are covered with your new 'No Bull Music Gear' string action gauge:

  • Flexibility: This string action gauge is double sided - imperial one side, metric on the other. Meaning you only need one gauge, saving you the cost of two seperate gauges. Plus you don't need to faff around with conversion charts.
  • Precision: Laser etched in the UK, to either 1/64th of an inch (on the imperial side) or 0.5mm (on the metric side)
  • Quality: Made in the UK from durable Stainless Steel - a handy, compact credit-card sized rule.

Its purpose? Checking various heights on any stringed instrument. The string action gauge features a progressive string height scale: simply slide it across the frets and read the measurement under the string. It's faster and more accurate than using a ruler, and stays parallel to the fingerboard - which is much easier than trying to hold a ruler perpendicular to a rounded fret.

Can be used to measure:

  • String height
  • Bridge saddle height
  • Saddle slot depth
  • Fret slot depth (unbound fingerboards)
  • Nut height
  • Pickup pole piece height

An essential luthier/setup tool. Grab one quick and get your axe playing like a dream!

Well made and well-marked, with the measurements etched and inked rather than just printed. Handy size.

You'll never need to buy another.

The gauge is very well made and a useful tool for fast set up. It's a little bit difficult to read however and would be better made from clear plastic, either rigid or soft, which would enable light to shine through and make reading easier.

Came within 2 days of ordering.
A bit on the expensive side compared to others on the market, but having both metric and imperial makes it more versatile and being stainless steel means it should last for years, so no regrets on buying it.
Makes checking string action and adjustments a breeze.
Credit card size and as it is metal and has good straight edges means you can use it to check fret heights too.
Thickness is probably too much for checking fret relief, but not that thick, so a good quick guide for that too.
Wish it had some conversions on it as most guitar manufacturers seem to give action heights in imperial i.e 4/64 " = 0.0625" or 1.5875mm?

Very useful tool, metric and imperial on opposite sides, no no more messing with a calculator when following American and/or European specifications on set ups.
Indespensible!
