just curious how many of you guys set up your own guitars? Or If you have a tech/shop do it, how much does it cost? I've almost always set up my own guitars, I find it fairly easy and another way to get to interact/tinker with my gear. My local guitar shop is always busy with set ups, every time I go in, someone is either picking up or dropping off a guitar. They charge $75 for a set up and string change... Idk but that sound fcking crazy expensive! I can change my strings and do a decent set up in less than an hour give or take depending on needing to fine tune intonation and it really isn't that difficult at all. I mean it's like if you can change your own strings you posses the skills to fine tune and adjust the guitar. I think it should be pretty mandatory for a guitarist to learn to set up his own guitar. You can spend years and years of dedication on learning the instrument but not take a few hours and some hands on experience to set it up yourself? I'm not judging anyone that doesn't do their own but I highly recommend it, plus you have the ability to experiment and find the perfect combo. A set up can make or break a guitar. So what do you do?
