Geoff Luttrell, Owner-Guitar Tech of SF & Sonoma County Guitar Works had this to say about our precision String Action Gauge:

The white lines really pop out of the black background and is much easier to see than traditional string action gauges. We use it constantly every day and I don’t think you will find a better one out there.

Geoff Luttrell, Owner-Guitar Tech of SF & Sonoma County Guitar Works had this to say about our Radius Gauge:

It is already hard enough to see if the string is touching the radius gauge, but having a black finish on the MusicNomad Radius Gauge makes it way easier to see than traditional silver radius gauges. 

Geoff Luttrell, Owner-Guitar Tech of SF & Sonoma County Guitar Works had this to say about our Nut Height Gauge:

"In my 20 plus years of doing setups, I have used every complicated nut height gauge out there from digital to dials, and I have come back to loving this hassle-free, easy to use and accurate MusicNomad Nut Height Gauge."

Caleb Smart, Senior Tech at Sweetwater's Guitar Gallery had this to say about our Precision Gauges:

"The MusicNomad Feeler Gauges are a game changer. They take away the hassle of fumbling through a bunch of gauges with an oily mess. They have the most common size gauges I need to get the job done fast, without the oily mess and it comes with a thick pick to act like a capo which is a huge plus!" 

Chris, owner and Master Guitar of Third Coast Guitar (Chicago, IL), a top repair shop in the Midwest had this to say about our Precision String Action Gauge:
"The MusicNomad String Action Gauge is great and so easy to see the lines compared to standard gray metal gauges. They are now our standard setup measuring tool on every bench." 
John Douglas touring tech for Suicide Silence & Born of Osiris had this to say about our 6 pc. Precision Setup Gauge Set:

After using this on a couple dozen setups this last month; I’ve fallen in love with this kit!! The absolute game changer is the String Action Guide, which is inverted in color (white on black instead of black on silver) and reading this for exact measurements absolutely rules especially when in dim lighting. Everything you need to setting measurements is in this set, and even has a little bit of extra room in the case where I keep a block for Floyd bridges and my MusicNomad Tune-It! This set now lives in my tech box full time, and it should absolutely be in yours!
Thank you again MusicNomad for changing the game in instrument care tools.

Jeff Cummings touring tech for Anthrax Stage Right had this to say about our 6 pc. Precision Setup Gauge Set:

“To have a compact kit with feeler and radius gauges makes it so much easier to get all the instruments I deal with dialed in on the go. Every musician or tech should have this in their tool kit or guitar case to make sure their adjustments are on point.” 

Joe Pitz, musician emailed us about our Precision Setup Gauge Set:

Hello MusicNomad,

I just started playing guitar a few months ago. I read the instructions and watched your online videos.  I just setup two guitars using the setup kit.  I am so very pleased with how easy your instructions were to follow and the quality of the tools that you included in the kit. It is obvious how much thought and design you have put into your product line.

Thanks so much

Joe Pitz

There are certain things (many things) better left to a pro, but being able to do my own basic setups has been game changing. MusicNomad is da bomb!
