Guitar Setups

Guitar SetupGuitars, generally, are made of wood and wood is constantly changing. Wood changes with time as well as temperature and humidity. Put simply, the guitar you buy today won’t sound the same as it will 20 years from now. With regular maintenance, it will sound and play considerably better. Having your guitar routinely setup protects your investment in the future.

All guitars should get a setup at purchase and regularly throughout the life of the guitar. Many instruments are purposefully made with a lot room for adjustment which makes it play a little awkward “out-of-the-box,” because each player is different and will have different performance needs. Most experienced guitar players want to get their new instruments setup to suit their playing style.

When you have your guitar setup, a repair technician will examine your instrument and adjust the neck and the string height, paying close attention to the condition of the nut and the saddle. Also the frets will be polished, the truss rod adjusted and the intonation setup to enable the action to be lowered. Electric guitars will also benefit from the connections being checked and cleaned as required.

In addition to this we can offer further setup enhancement to include fret dressing and reprofiling.

The adjustments are made within tolerances that are widely accepted and agreed upon by the guitar building and repair industry.

A properly set up instrument is both inspiring and pleasurable to play.

In our eyes, a fully set up guitar or bass is the only option and we encourage our customers to utilise the guitar set up facility we have within our premises.
