A set-up is considered standard maintenance for guitars, bass guitars, mandolins, etc and entails setting proper string height and action, intonation, cleaning of the electronics, and oiling the fretboard. We typically recommended both professional and hobbyist musicians get this maintenance at least 2 times a year, sometimes more if you find yourself in a wide variety of playing environments. Struggling with intonation or fretting? It's probably time to consider a set-up! Standard set-up fees are $60 + the cost of whatever strings you choose from our wide-variety of choices.
