Guitar Setups and Setup Course

The professional guitar setup is a much misunderstood thing.  I attribute that to the fact that there are alot of  folks out there who think they can perform a setup just because they can tighten a truss rod,  but they really dont really get it. As long as it doesnt buzz and the action is “low”, they think the job is done.

  The difference between a basic setup and a solid professionally done setup can be subtle but at the same time can change completely the way a guitar plays for the better.   I’ve had so many customers fall back in love with a guitar after its had a proper setup in our shop.
