    How much would you sell it for?

    You know I don't know. I bought it for 1600.00 but it all depends really. I'd like to see what Kindness can do before I start talking prices

    • getting access to the truss adjusting nut/component can be difficult on some basses with the strings attached
      i usually slacken off the strings and pop them out of the nut grooves to give better access to the truss adjustment nuts at the headstock end...
      i did this for my fender
      and would be interested in twin truss rod owners...as on my rickenbacker 4003...if they can set the truss rods with the strings on

      on my stingray with the adjuster at the neck joint end i still slacken off the strings to ensure i dont hit them with the ajusting bar i use

      this also means there is no real force on the screw parts and they will turn easily

      • Awesome, I forgot this was making a comeback.


        Quick question Kindness...

        Do you think this is a good kit for setups? pricewise also.

        I'm contemplating buying it.

        • I love the string action gauge. I have a different straightedge (24" for setting up shop tools), but most any will do. You can definitely find one cheaper. The only use I have for items like the under-string radius gauges is for the work I do on acoustic guitars. I can't see how they would be useful for bass setups if you already have the string action gauge.

          • Good to know, I was thinking of buying the kit as well. Maybe the money would be better spent on a few fret leveling tools and just thet action gauge.

              Hmm... Yeah I didn't know whether the string radius gauges would be necessary. Though my SB's have a noticibly small radiused board (I think thats the correct term?) so maybe this would be useful?

              So would it be better to buy individual tools, if so what would you recommend? (on stewmac.com) Under ~$100 total preferably.

              • I can do that. I'm on the road now to hang with Guttermouth (a short 8 hour drive ), so any useful response will be delayed until next week. I'm not as good on my blackberry.

                            I totally forgot... sorry.

                            For my personal setups I find this string action guage (~$20) to be the absolute most effective measuring tool for all aspects of the job. Small, handy, effective, etc. Obviously, any effective measuring tool will work, this is just my favorite. Other than that, the only things needed for good setups are the tools required to adjust the components of your instrument (i.e., screwdrivers, hex keys, etc.) and an accurate tuner. An accurate and precise tuner is even better. Like many here, I use a Peterson virtual strobe tuner for that reason. I find a capo and a string winder to be helpful, but definitely not essential.

                            All of the other tools related to setups are for some of the more advanced procedures, like fretwork and making/fine tuning nuts.

                              That's what I did.
