Been put off doing it by so many people saying how hard it is and how it can kill your guitar, but if you follow word for word it's straight forward with amazing results.

And thanks for sending the link for your 2012 post on making a new nut that is great.

The next step is to tune your guitar.
Plus, you don’t want to go through all the trouble of lowering the action and setting the intonation just to have it get messed up when you find out your guitar neck isn’t straight. David and Damon, that's great. I enjoyed the whole set up process using your straightforward instructions.. Michael from Oz! New string gauges will just pull on the neck and bridge differently, so it will take more work to set it up. Just got done with a Squier Strat.

I can’t turn the truss rod with the tight strings in the way. Build your own electric guitar using our DIY guitar kits!

Before the action and intonation can be set, the strings need to be set to the same radius as the fretboard. There are many steps to properly setup on an electric guitar.

Thanks for posting it in such a clear way. Hey man, great article, and great site overall!

I'll do a pickup height one in the near future.

Whereas, a guitar with lower action will be easier to play than a guitar with higher action, but the strings won’t have as much room to vibrate.

That obviates the need for continuous retuning between adjustments or having to use a tuner. Excessive low action can also cause string buzzing.

Wouldn’t I tune it AFTER straightening the neck? Colin.....Hi stu, I have a USA HSS and had is pro setup when brand new... always wondered why the E and B strings we dead and full of buzz and also double tones. Are you in trouble if you DON'T? great site, however your background (though very beautiful) makes reading the instructions very difficult for me.

I've just completed a setup on a strat copy, following your blog. Hi Jeremiah, you definitely need to correctly tune the strings before adjusting the neck, otherwise the neck tension will be wrong.

You can either download a tuner app on your phone such as guitartuna, or even just find someone playing the notes on the Internet (very easy to find).

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.

so, my guitar is in need of setup, however, I don't have a tuner or any means of creating reliable reference pitch to be able to re-tune while adjusting things, the three low strings (E,A, and D) buzz pretty bad open and while playing up to about the 9th fret which leads me to believe I need to adjust the neck bow and saddle heights, any suggestions? ), then that's the time to look into the nut. #guita, Might as well... #fenderguitars #fenderguitar #fen, Which one do you want? The second half of this post may be of some use to you: http://diystrat.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/hofner-colorama-ii-restoration-project_15.html.

#guitar #fenderguitar #fend, Do you agree? Harmony takes effort which you gave well here.

Pit Bull Guitars DHB-4 Semi-Hollow Electric Bass Guitar Kit Bass Guitar Kits, D Series, DIY Guitar Kits AUD $ 269.00. Intonation is usually set at the 12th fret or one octave from the open strings.
They are all very gratefully received and really make posting this stuff worthwhile.

I am so glad I ran into your Blog. It's like I have a whole new guitar. Check it out. We are setting up your guitar the right way.

Hahahaha great blogs, all of em, really spot on.

However, as is the case on most Telecaster-style guitars, there are no height adju... 1. Setting up an electric guitar is not rocket science, but it is something that a lot of guitarists shy away from. Thanks, a really useful article and easy to follow due to your writing style. Hello everyone.

Thank You! Notice that I did not say, “tune your guitar to standard pitch.” You should setup your guitar up to play properly in the tuning that you normally play in. I think you'll be OK, ha. I’ve talked about all of these topics on other pages.
