Guitar SetUP

What is a guitar setup? As the weather changes from season to season, changes in humidity and temperature affect the shape of the guitar. Although this happens on a very small scale, it dramatically affects the way a guitar is played.

A “guitar setup” is a series of adjustments that allow for perfect playability. We recommend setting up your guitar once or twice a year.

This service includes:

  • Balancing the tremolo 
  • Adjusting action
  • Setting intonation 
  • Checking electronics
  • Adjusting pickups
  • Detail and cleaning
  • Diagnosing the guitar
  • Cleaning the fretboard 
  • Tightening hardware 
  • Restringing
  • Adjusting the nut slots 
  • Truss rod adjustment

"My guitar plays better than when I bought it new. Plays like a beauty!"
