Setups

When your instrument feels difficult to play, buzzes on the frets, or sounds out of tune (after you have tuned it up), typically the instrument needs a setup. A setup fine tunes the playability of your instrument, so it feels best to your hands. After a set-up we’ll ask you to play your instrument for a few minutes, after which we’ll make any last minute adjustments you’d like.

Every setup is different, but a typical one might include:

  • Test operations of all electronics
  • Clean and polish the instrument
  • Replace strings
  • Check frets for buzzing
  • Inspect, tighten, and lubricate machine heads (tuning keys)
  • Set height of bridge for instruments with a floating tremolo
  • Adjust the neck to spec (yours or manufacturer’s)
  • Set the saddle height to spec (yours or manufacturer’s)
  • Adjust pickup height
  • Inspect and tighten output jack
  • Inspect and tighten strap buttons
  • Adjust intonation and tune to pitch
