What if you could get accuracy, readability, quality & functionality in one string action gauge? Winner! Being able to measure your string action is a critical step in the setup process. Music Nomad’s patent pending precision String Action Gauge is packed with unmatched features & benefits. It starts with accurate measurements that are easy to read with the black finish contrasted with deep etched white markings. “We asked 170 guitar techs/players and 52% said it’s hard to read the lines and exact measurements on their existing String Action Gauges,” say Rand Rognlien, CEO of Music Nomad. “The unique combo of our black finish with bright white lines to measure silver string heights really solves that problem," says Rognlien.


The high quality stainless steel design combined with numbers & lines that don’t rub off ensures years of use. They include measurements in inches, metric & 64ths to customize to your preference. Their convenient chart on prop er height by instrument type takes out the guesswork. The pickup ruler helps you dial in your sound even more. And yes, designed with 4 different side lengths you can find the side that lays across 3 frets and use as a Fret Rock er to check if you have any uneven fret heights.

The String Action Gauge is one of four new precision gauges Music Nomad is introducing. In collaboration with Master Guitar Tech Geoff Luttrell of SF & Sonoma Country Guitarworks, Music Nomad has developed the KEEP IT SMPLE, SETUP™ (KISS).
