A professional guitar setup brings the guitar to it’s optimum playability and sound. In a full guitar setup one would dress the frets( fret levelling ) as this is the most crucial part of a full guitar/bass setup.

Important points after a fret is levelled and crowned (made round after the levelling) are,

  • The guitar intonation will be at it’s most accurate.
  • The string will vibrate at its freest.
  • The guitar action will improve regardless of the gauge of the strings.
  • Any guitar will benefit from a full professional guitar setup regardless of its price or level of playing.

When it comes to setting up a guitar we need to remember that the guitar is a tool and it can be set to play and sound  better.
