    Straight as an arrow and a great price!

    For standard generic products like this, I always come to PLS as their prices seem about 20-30% lower across the board than stewmac or allparts. This is a high quality tool and does exactly what it’s supposed to. Don’t hesitate to buy PLS’s products, you won’t be disappointed!

    A Must Have Tool

    Posted by Tim on Jun 22, 2017

    Having a tried and true straight edge at your fingertips is paramount to any type of guitar repair or luthier work. After working with make shift straight edges for a while, I broke down and treated myself to a proper tool, this Philadelphia Luthier straight edge. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Shipping was super fast. Great quality product, priced fairly. I'm a customer for life.

    So easy to measure neck relief now!

    Posted by Kevin on Jan 4, 2017

    This makes measuring neck relief a breeze when combined with the Guitar Luthier Feeler Gauge set of 20.

    No more capo on the first fret and holding a string down on the neck where it meets the body and then trying to measure all at the same time. The main issue I found with this method is that the string was not rigid enough and it was too easy to bend/lift the string with the feeler gauge.

    There is no lifting of this straight edge!

    Works great on 24.75" and 25.5" scale guitar necks.

    Top Quality at Half the Cost (of you know who)

    Posted by Michael Corgey on Apr 3, 2016

    Excellent straight edges! I have the notched straightedge & the fret rocker too. All are professionally machined & finished, & of suitably heavy stock. Just be VERY careful with their sharp edges! But this is as it should be, any chamfer on the edges reduces the practical accuracy of these tools. Use in controlled situations & revel in the knowledge that you get to win once in a while.
