This is a tool used for evening the string heights with the curve (radius) of your fretboard.

It's used for bridge types that adjusts every string independently (like Fender strat tremolo's) . So after adjusting string height, print these, google your guitars neck radius and correct minimal height issues for better playing comfort.

I picked up a set of steel under string radius gauges from Stew Mac a few years ago - they allow you to measure the fretboard radius with the strings on as well as adjust the saddle heights to match that radius.

Radius gauges are a highly underestimated tool for proper set ups! biggrin.gif
