What is a Set-Up?

A set-up is necessary for all stringed instruments for the best possible playability. It makes for a much more comfortable and accurate playing experience compared to instruments without.

They typically cost $30 – $60 and should only be attempted by experienced professionals. (Luthiers)

A set-up includes:

  • Inspection of strings, moving parts, and loose parts.
  • Cleaning of the factory debris off of the frets and fretboards (No gunk left behind)
  • Conditioning of the fret board (It won’t feel dry)
  • Straightening of the neck (The strings don’t buzz)
  • Lowering of the action (The strings aren’t hard to push down)
  • Intonation check (It’s actually in tune with itself)
  • Polishing of the body and headstock

We examine and set-up every stringed instrument that we sell online. We do this to make sure you’ll have a better playing instrument than most retailers.
