Not wanting to leave bass players out, we developed an alternate kit optimized for low-enders. The hex key set is matched to virtually all bass makes, and the string winder has been removed to save a couple of bucks. Like its guitar brethren, the GrooveTech Bass Kit has top-shelf tools that are lifetime guaranteed, and stored in a pouch that will fit into most gig bags. An Easy Setup Guide will make you comfortable with truss rod, action, pickup, and intonation adjustment. After a few setups, you’ll immediately know when a minor tweak is called for.

It's a great concept! The construction of some of the tools leaves a great deal to be desired. The spring continually pops out of the wire cutters, but they do cut well. The screwdriver is absolutely unexcusable! The reversible shaft comes out of the handle without warning and never stays put! I replaced it with a quality screwdriver. The feeler gauges and the steel ruler are pretty good. They come in handy when setting up my basses and eliminate the guess work for me. The Allen keys really come in handy as well. I'm amazed I was able to make use of the capo during setup even on my 5-strings basses, but it works. Overall, I like it, I use it a lot, but that screwdriver has got to go!
I always wondered what tools I could buy and how to do the basic setup for a bass. Is obvious that buying this product won't make you a professional tech.(it's not like you will get what you need to build or customize your own bass), but could help you save money on the long run. Every three months I used to pay some tech. to check on my Fender Jazz and sometimes I payed more for an adjustment that I didn't know how to do it, but inside of me I knew it was a simple thing. When I saw this kit, read the instructions and watch the videos from Cruz Tools on bassplayer.com. I learned quick, it was very easy. When I did the first setup on my bass I realized that I did a better job than the tech. that always took care of my bass.(I'm not kidding) I finally got the action on my strings that I always asked for but the tech couldn't do, he tryed to, but always ended leaving some buzzing and I had to go back and ask him to fix it. I recomend this product, it has the basic tools for anyone to...
First: THIS SET OF TOOLS NO LONGER COMES WITH A FLASHLIGHT! Amazon should update its picture.
That said, this has everything else you need to perform the perfect setup on your bass. I just used the to set up my MIM jazz bass.
Also, since someone asked, my kit did come with a thorough setup guide.
Finally, I received excellent customer service from CruzTools when I contacted them regarding the flashlight.
