Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

Jack the Gripper

When you are working on any guitar with a pickup, you eventually will have to tighten the nut that holds the jack in place. This is not a difficult thing to do provided you have access to the back of the jack. You almost always do, provided you don't mind removing pickguards or back plates. This handy tool designed by Frank Ford allows you to hold and tighten the nut from the front of the jack. Imagine how much time that saves! It uses an eccentric knurled cam to grip and hold the jack securely. In addition, Frank has come up with a way to tighten recessed jacks using a cleverly designed wrench included with "the Gripper".
