Instrument Set-up

A proper set-up is crucial to having a great playing guitar. We use precision tools, proprietary specifications, and exacting tolerances to calibrate every instrument.

Our setup procedure:

  • Set string height and radius
  • Set intonation
  • File nut slots for optimum playability
  • Polish frets
  • Buff fingerboard
  • Oil fingerboard (rosewood, ebony)
  • Oil and torque tuning machines
  • Remove/clean component panel
  • Clean controls/repair or replace, as needed*
  • Repair cold solder joints, if needed
  • Clean and polish instrument (if desired)
  • Install new strings per client’s preference*
  • Tune instrument to client’s preference

Regular Price: $50

Please note that some instruments (e.g. 12-string guitars, or those with floating tremolo systems, etc.) do take longer to fully setup and may result in a higher cost on a case-to-case basis.
