Great Tool

I have tried 2 other string height gauges at nearly double the price and they didn't come close to the accuracy and ease of use of this gauge.

Great idea BUT....

Great idea, but very poorly made. I'm a machinist by trade and build guitars as a side business so I'm use to well built tools of the trade. This is the first tool I've not had a great experience with from here. Be very careful with battery cover, the little catch pins on the side broke just getting it open to install battery, it's now taped together to work, be careful installing the battery, has to slide in a certain way or you'll bend the negative terminal strap. A bit too much slop in the slide. Ended up throwing it a drawer and going back to my calipers. Maybe the second version of this tool these issues will be addressed.
