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.

Honestly, you will likely not find a better notched straightedge for the price! It's flat on both sides, thick enough to resist bending, smooth, and it is an incredible price. They are so well-made for $30 USD, that I have purchased multiple for travel and different parts of my shop.
ANOTHER BONUS: Although not mentioned, you can use this notched straightedge on PRS-style/25" scale lengths as well. Although a little tight, this works on one side up until the fretwire size is super jumbo (0.115" width of the crown.) This is when I would advise against using it as it may scratch your fretwire from the tight fit. Nonetheless, great job, Philly!
Takes any guess work out of ensuring the neck is straight. I don't have the eye to sight a neck so this tool enabled me to full adjust and set up my own guitars. Incredible and valuable tool. It makes a difference.
Great tool, I finally was able to get my neck leveled and straight
Setups went from fiddley to straightforward. I never got one before because they were just too dang expensive at "THE OTHER" seller. Now if I could just find a 24" scale one...
Great notched straight edge. Just used it for straightening out my neck for a fret job.
Works great for getting the neck flat for leveling frets. High quality tool that will last a lifetime. Worth every penny.
Outstanding workmanship and value! Helped me adjust out some neck problems that were hard to find with thickness gauge alone!
Great tool for the money - PLT is an awesome company!
Precision truss rod adjustment with this tool. 8 thousands feeler gauge at the 8th fret is my "rule-of-thumb"
I took mine to a machinist friend to check straightness. It needed some tweaking to get it to what machinist call "dead-nuts."
I bought the regular straight edge here and it was straight ("dead-nuts"). Recommend getting both and then you can check one against the other.
