Most setups follow the same guidelines. Please note some instruments may require special attention and are addressed individually for optimal setup. The following is the basic steps required for a proper setup:

  • Neck relief- measure and adjust truss rod for optimal neck relief for your instruments’ current condition.
  • Nut adjustment- measure and correct nut slot depth and angle. Lowering slots are included in the setup price; however, raising/filling nut slots are an additional cost.
  • String height- measure and adjust string height. Height is set based on customer preference or lowest possible without fret-buzz. Acoustics are adjusted by saddle overall height and electrics are adjusted using individual saddles in most cases.
  • Fret evaluation- frets are cleaned and lightly polished with setups. Frets are checked for uneven/high spots and advice provided to customer. Low/worn spots on frets or high frets can cause intonation problems. Full re-crown and polish is available upon request at additional cost.
  • Intonation- evaluate and adjust intonation. Advise customer if any conditions exist that will continue to impact intonation.
  • Clean and polish- basic cleaning and various polish may be used. This includes hydrating/oiling the fretboard. Due to the varying material and conditions of instruments cleaning and polishing is performed at a reasonable level based on each case. Extremely dirty instruments may incur additional charges.
  • Restring- strings are not included in the price of a setup. We encourage customers to provide strings of their choice at time of drop-off. We stock D’Addario electric and acoustic strings. Custom order of strings is available at additional cost.
  • Electronics- evaluate and clean electronic components where applicable. Scratchy pots or oxidized input jacks are sprayed with contact cleaner to help eliminate issues. Loose components are tightened as needed. Pickup height is adjusted to recommended setting or customer preference.
  • Final Check- instrument is played and suggestions for improvement are noted for customer.
