Stewmac, Sweetwater, Amazon – it seems that everyone is offering a “Guitar Setup Basic Toolkit” – priced from $133 to $30 and everything in between.

But they all have different tools in their guitar setup kits! Stewmac, it seems, has the fewest tools (3) for the highest price ($133). And in my article criticizing vendors who seemingly are trying to take advantage of newbies who may not be sure of what is needed, I say that two of Stewmac’s three tools are totally unnecessary! And the third is, in my not-so-humble opinion, a poor choice for it’s task.

Since GuitarsDoneRight is geared more toward players, I’ve posted this article on my website for guitar techs & resellers.
