Multi-Tool - CruzTOOLS GrooveTech, for Guitar and Bass
Introducing the second generation of the GrooveTech Guitar/Bass Multi-Tool Introduced in 2008, the original GrooveTech Multi-Tool was an instant hit with guitar and bass players alike. Never before had a multi-tool provided such functionality or made use of pro-grade components. In spite of market acceptance, CruzTOOLS designers envisioned improvements and spent over two years developing a second generation tool that boasts significant advances. Like the original tool, both inch and metric hex wrenches are provided with ball-ends for truss rod sizes. Tool components use professional S2 steel with an attractive polished-chrome finish. Second-generation improvements include a 5/16" socket for Gibson and similar truss rod nuts, addition of 5mm and 1/16" hex wrenches, and a precision ruler with inch and metric scales.

String Cutters - CruzTOOLS GrooveTech, for guitar and bass
CruzTOOLS developed the GrooveTech String Cutters specifically for Guitar and Bass strings. Guitar and bass strings are made of hardened stainless steel or nickel with thicknesses as high as 3mm. Ordinary diagonal cutters are designed for soft copper, and thus fail miserably when used on strings. GrooveTech String Cutters were developed specifically for this application, using a proprietary heat-treatment process. Despite its compact five-inch length, even “B” bass strings cut easily and your days of dented blades will be a thing of the past. Vinyl grips feel great in your hands.

Truss Rod Driver - Cruz Tools, GrooveTech
Vintage-style truss rod nuts have long, thin slots and are made of unhardened steel, so normal slotted screwdrivers will cause damage – as evidenced on many vintage guitars and basses. Cruz Tools developed two screwdrivers specifically for this application. Proper adjustment involves removal of the neck for full nut access, and our Standard Driver provides firm contact over the entire slot width for damage-free adjustment. The Cheater Driver™ allows quick minor adjustment without removing the neck. Both have oversized handles with extra-long shafts for a firm grip and easy access.
