Gets the job done without costing an arm and a leg
JM Herford 17.10.2020
If you're like me and you like to set your neck as close to straight as possible, this is the tool to get you there with minimal fuss. I already had a notched edge for guitars from another more expensive brand and decided to give this product a try as it was half the price of the other brand's equivalent:

Pros:
* Nice and chunky with a good weight to it - you won't be bending this thing by accident.
* It is in fact straight! I checked it against some other straight edges and there are no visible variations.

Cons:
* Has lots of sharp corners. Compared to the other brand's product, the corners are noticeably sharper; while both products require a certain degree of care when handling around an instrument to avoid leaving scratches, this one will definitely punish you harder should you have a moment of clumsiness. Some careful filing will likely fix this.

Ultimately I'm happy that I purchased this product, yeah there may be an objectively nicer product on the market but you really can't beat the price of the Harley Benton, it does its job and it does it well!

Good solid tool

No trouble with overly sharp edges and it has been tested straight.
I've only used it on Fender basses so far, but had no problems setting them up.
Recommended, and happy with the price.

Not straight
kdndo 27.01.2022
Literally the only job of a straightedge is to be, wait for it, straight. I almost set up the truss rods incorrectly because I blindly believed that this product actually was as advertised.

Essential tool for bass setup
Velarian 20.11.2021
As my bass collection has grown and I’ve experimented with different string brands, gauges and tensions, this has become an essential part of my setup kit. It has both 34” and 35” scales, and does the job perfectly. Great value too.
