A notched straight edge is a handy tool for evaluating the fingerboard straightness before fret leveling.  This straight edge is machined from stainless steel of years of dependable use.   We personally check each one for straightness before it leaves our shop.

    Sharp edges and poor markings

    Posted by Unknown on May 30, 2018

    It is straight, and it does work. The edges are incredibly sharp, and should not be near a musical instrument that is preferred undamaged unless you spend some time filing them. The print on the tool does not list the scale lengths as 24.75" and 25.5", but rather states "Long Guitar Scale" and "Short Guitar Scale." Why put subjective terms on it? In guitar speak, a 24.75" isn't considered short scale at all, so that is even misleading. All in all, it's a tool with a good concept that appears to have been made by someone who has no idea what it's for and who will be using it.

    Heavy, well machined piece of steel. I use it to make my tele neck flat. Feels like quality to me and way less than someplace else...

    For $50 less than what others want for this tool, you get the same thing just without the 'GIBSON side and FENDER side and it says SHORT OR LONG scale.NO BIGGIES, for $25 I am glad I bought the only tool I need to set accurate relief and checking fret levels. EXCELLENT !!!

    Great tool..reasonable price

    I really like its versatility with different models and necks. Little sharp on the edges, but will soften em up. You need this for a good adjustment. Well worth it

    Great notched straight edge for the price

    Great straight edge for the price. Yes, the edges are a little sharp - but that is by no means a deal killer here. Buy it, if you need one. You can always de-burr it with a piece of scotch - brite pad if the edges become an issue.

    This notched straight edge was just what I wanted for my fret dress projects and was a great price too. A bargain!

    Works great!

    Really needed to pick one of these up, and after reading a few reviews, decided why not. A few reviewers mentioned 'good, but sharp edges', keeping their experiences in mind, I prepped and had a good wire brush ready, but my edges were pretty good, no complaints. I have used this product numerous times now and already feel like it's paid it's own way.

    Now if only they made a bass version, 34"/35". Hint Hint.
