Gear Review: GrooveTech Stagehand Tech Kit

The Stagehand Tech Kit is a professional grade toolkit for Guitar or Bass setups and is designed for maximum portability with no loss in functionality. The Stagehand Tech Kit includes a 19-piece magnetic Bit set, a screwdriver Bit Holder, a GrooveTech String Cutter, Precision Ruler, a Capo and a String winder packed in a tour grade pocket sized pouch that’s ready to hit the road. The assortment of parts gives Guitar Techs, Stagehands and Professional Musicians all the tools they need for most Guitar and Bass setups either on a workbench or on the go. The kit includes two custom designed rubber bit holders packed with a generous assortment of both inch and metric hex bits wrenches, screwdrivers and Sockets, all of which are clearly labeled. The well-labeled bit holders are a great feature as it allows you to keep everything easily organized and put back where it is supposed to go when you're done working on your Guitar or Bass. The back of the ruler has basic set-up specs for precise Truss Rod adjustments, Bridge (action) Pickup height and Bridge intonation. The 15-blade thickness gauge works with the included integrated ruler to allow for precise neck measurements and truss rod and nut adjustments. The tool kit can also be used to setup most tremolo systems.

GrooveTech has an easy set-up Guide on their website which will make it possible for most Musicians to do set-ups on their own – check it out here: groovetechtools.com/images/easysetupguide.pdf
