"Great Product"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I already had a toolbox filled with accumulated tools and odds and ends that I've picked up over the years. But sometimes "more" means less. I could never seem to find the tool that I needed when I needed it. Now the most essential tools that I seem to use the most are in a nice compact case, ready to go. It's also very portable, which means I can take it with me instead of having to randomly grab tools out of the toolbox, usually taking way more than I'll need "just to be safe". Overall, a relatively inexpensive way to treat your guitar(s) right.
Sound
Sounds okay for something that doesn't make a sound. But once you use this kit to get your guitar set up properly your guitar will definitely sound and play much better.
Features
A guitar tech obviously put a lot of thought as to what should go into this kit. This kit contains everything that I need to set up my guitars, with one noteable exception: an offset screwdriver for adjusting floating trem claws. Otherwise I have a use for every tool in this kit. Some people may be put off by the seemingly delinquent capo, but it's there to capo off your first fret for measuring neck relief, NOT for barring off for playing in different keys. This kit will most likely fit into the outer pocket of most gig bags but it's a little too bulky to fit into any of my hardshell cases.
Ease of Use
I still haven't quite figured out how to use the screwdriver yet...lol! But seriously, all of these tools perform their function well. There's an included setup guide to get you going, but if you don't really understand what you're doing with any particular procedure then STOP and take it to a tech to show you. No sense in ruining your guitar just to save a few bucks.
Quality
Topnotch quality! No skimping here in the quality of the components. The cutters are plenty hefty to get the job done, the screwdriver has a strong feel to it, and the allen keys all seem sturdy enough. The flashlight is also very sturdy.
Value
If you were to buy all of these tools separately you'd spend a lot more money and a lot of time running to different stores to find what you needed (been there. done that.). So it's definitely a great value.
The Wow Factor
This should be on every serious guitarist's must have list.

"Nice little kit"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Does what it says it does, kit comes with everything you'll need to adjust your guitar. I've even used the capo in a pinch, though it's not really meant for playing. Oh and it comes with a setup guide for the newb which is pretty helpful.

"Pretty decent little kit."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is a great little kit for somebody wants to get into fixing their own guitars up. I only have one complaint and that's the fact that the spring fell out of the string cutter.

"Great kit!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This tools set certainly covers the basics and does it nicely. Good quality tools. I did (though operator error) twist the small flat head bit trying to torque a soldering iron tip, but despite me offering to pay for it, CruzTools has replaced it. No sound rating applicable-5 starts rated just for continuity.
