Acoustic guitar setup
« on: May 29, 2019, 07:52:38 am »

Had my Yamaha Folk Guitar in for a check/setup the other week. I bought the guitar three years ago (as a beginner) and I always thought the action was pretty ok, but the setup really made a difference. Only thing they did was file down the saddle a bit and put on a set of new strings. Otherwise they said the guitar was in good condition. The guitar is wonderful to play now. Biggest difference is high up the neck but also open chords and bar chords on lower frets are easier to play now. So if you are thinking about doing a setup, don't hesitate. Should have done it earlier.

I couldn't agree more Johan. All of my Seagulls that I bought used, went in for a setup. Even my brand new Martin went in for a setup a few months after I bought it. I'm lucky to have one of the best luthiers not far from me. The guy is amazing and my guitars are a dream to play.

The importance of a good setup can't be over emphasized. It's crucial. My last couple of guitar purchases from came setup right out of the box.
