New Gear/ Toy Review: CruzTOOLS GrooveTech Guitar/Bass Multi-Tool

CruzTOOLS™ now offers their latest version of their popular GrooveTech™ Guitar/Bass Multi-Tool with an expanded utility but at the same price of $15.95 MSRP as the original model. Great for both basses and guitars, everything you need to keep your instrument(s) in tip-top playing condition comes in this pocket-sized multi-tool made using pro-grade S2 steel with a polished-chrome finish.

With this new tool, you can adjust truss rods, set string height (action) and length (intonation), pickup height, tweak tremolo systems and much more.

There are 14 tools. There are both metric and inch hex wrench sizes for guitars and basses made all over the world and all truss rod sizes are ball-end for easy access. New tools are: a 5/16-inch socket for Gibson guitars and both 1/16-inch and 5-mm hex wrenches were added plus a precision ruler with both inch and metric scales.

All this comes in a one-piece, easy-to-hold body that has a list of the tools and sizes printed on its side. Overall size increased slightly to about 4 X 1.25 X 0.75-inches (95 X 34 X 187mm). Weight is approximately 5 ounces (140g).

What a great tool to have nearby when my Strat needs some love. It's ready to go for adjusting the whammy or for tightening the head nut after changing strings. Awesome!
