Multiscale guitars within 24.5" to 27" range can also be checked.

 

NOTE - 24" SCALE GUITARS WITH ZERO FRET

For this scale the tool bridges over the nut (see repositioning below) and is not suitable for 24" scale guitars that feature a zero fret due to the extended nut position on the instrument. If in doubt, please contact us with your requirement so that we can confirm suitability of the tool.

 

OTHER SCALES

Other scales to those listed are possible, please contact us with your requirement so that we can check suitability of the tool.

 

TOOL DESIGN

The design of our tool is based on only checking the length of the fretboard that is capable of being deflected. The highest frets are omitted as these are past the heel/neck join and won't be affected by truss rod adjustment or string tension. This keeps the number of notches down to 18 and combined with the unique design of the notch spacing, allows the tool to be used for multiple scales across the range specified.

The straight edges are machined & polished in house using specialised tooling and accuracy is checked on a calibrated (grade 000) precision granite inspection table. All edges are dressed and sharp corners are removed.

 

POSITIONING ON THE NECK

The positioning on the neck will vary depending on the scale of the instrument.

A double dot mark for position reference is provided at the 12th notch.

For 24" scale the dots are placed at the 11th fret.

For 24.5"- 25.5" range, the dots are positioned at the 12th fret.

For longer scales the dots are placed at the 13th fret.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

1) Precision Straight Edge - 400mm Long. For precision tasks including checking fret levels.

2) Removable Steady - This prevents the tool from toppling over, allowing it to remain positioned on the neck during setup and adjustments. Free-standing use provides easy observation of changes to neck when adjusting the truss rod. (The steady can be used with or without strings fitted).
