Seems like it is a decent straight edge, a bit thin and there is a lateral curve which hopefully was already in the steel before the critical edges were ground.
Nice and straight, as expected, good value.
Thicc and Straight. What more could you ask forf?
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!
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.
I ordered some setup tools from this company and it all made it to my home in K.C. in like 3 days. This straight edge is prolly gonna be my go to for the rest of my life. I am very happy with the tools I have ordered from these folks! I can only recommend them!
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.
Great piece, very well made at a really good price. you will have no regrets about purchasing this. Packed good and shipped fast. ( What more could you want).
