    1. Notched straightedge 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Jun 26, 2016

      Decently made and accurate. Only reason for not giving a
      5 is that the edges need more softening. Its pretty easy to
      ding the fingerboard.

    2. Good tool 5 Star Review

      Veri useful tool, high quality.

    3. Excellent quality 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 11, 2015

      This is much, much nicer than one would expect for the price, especially when compared to the price of the competitor. The edges are definitely too sharp but for the cost savings I don't mind hitting it with a file.

    4. Get this for better accuracy 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jun 8, 2015

      Much more accurate than a plastic make-shift draftsman squares (I checked) that some luthiers on a budget use. Worth the cost.

    5. Great tool 5 Star Review

      Posted by on May 5, 2015

      Once again bought this tool from PLT and saved big over the other guys. Perfectly cut. Perfectly level.

    6. Good tool BUT!!!! 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 26, 2015

      This tool is steel and the edges are very sharp. Extreme care is required when using it around a guitar. the sharp edges can easily scratch/nick the poly on a maple neck and rosewood/ebony. It does its intended function but it could have had a brass wire brush buffing on the edges to smooth them out a bit. it is sharp just to handle it in your hands. if it touches the body it will scratch it instantly as it did on mine.

    7. As good as it gets!! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 16, 2015

      I checked this straight edge for straightness and when they tell they check it before it leaves their shop, they mean it! It is dead on accurate, heavy duty. It will stand on it's side easily. Stainless steel -rust proof. If Stew-M is any better, I'd like to know how they do it!! I'd bet the same company makes them both. So check out the prices from Philadelphia and Stew-M and decide for yourself!!

    8. COOL TOOL 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 30, 2014

      This tool is great for straight edge work on the neck. It's made well although the edges are too sharp. I had to file the sharpness off the edges because I couldn't stand the sharpness of it. Other than that it's great.
