Why do I need a setup?

Over time and under certain conditions your guitar may feel uncomfortable or even impossible to play. Why is that you ask?

String tension, climate and temperature work well together to make your guitar unpleasant. This is very off putting and discourages new and younger players.

Simply putting on fresh string and tuning to pitch is not going to help your guitar sound and play as amazing as it should.

This is why a proper setup is important.

 

How do I know if I need a setup?

Are the strings far from the frets, making the guitar difficult to play? when you tune your guitar to pitch, do you get the same note, in tune at the 12th fret? does the neck look straight?

These are usually the first signs that your beloved instrument is in need of some TLC. We have bucket loads of that TLC for you.

 

What do we do when we see your guitar?

  • First thing we do is give the instrument a thorough clean and polish
  • The fretboard and any other exposed wood gets feed some good oil to keep it from drying out and cracking
  • We make  sure the neck is straight before string tension as well as after.
  • Out with the old strings and in with the new*
  • We adjust the action, making the string as close to the fretboard as possible without buzzing. This makes it comfortable and easy to play
  • We set the intonation, keeping your instrument in tune no matter where along the neck you play.
  • Then we give it a nice jam to make sure it feels and sounds as good as it is meant to,
  • After the Jam session we give it a few hours to a day to adjust under the tension of the new strings (depeding on conditions)
  • Once it passes final inspection we giive you a call to say it’s ready to go home.
