Electric Guitar and Bass Setup
At my South London workshop I offer three types of electric guitar and bass setup and servicing;
Basic. I would recommend this type of electric guitar and bass setup for guitars that are reasonably clean, not heavily used, strings are less than 6 months old, and you just want the reassurance that the guitar is setup properly and playing as well as it can. Cost: £35.
Standard. I would recommend this type of service and setup for most guitars. Cost: £60-70 plus new set of strings
Deluxe. I would recommend this type of service and setup for guitars that are heavily used and need a really good clean. In addition to the Standard service, components are removed and cleaned and the body and neck is cleaned and polished. Cost: £80-100, depending on condition of guitar, plus new set of strings
Basic Electric Guitar and Bass Setup
1. Check and adjust as necessary string height at nut
2. Check neck relief and adjust truss rod as necessary
3. Set string height
4. Check and adjust intonation as necessary.
5. Check and adjust as necessary pickup height and pole-piece height (on humbuckers)
6. Check electrics
7. Set string radius at bridge (on guitars which have individual string saddles)
8. Leave overnight and check finished set-up
Standard Electric Guitar and Bass Setup and Service
In addition to the Basic service, the guitar strings are removed, the fretboard is cleaned, oiled and polished (not maple fretboards), the frets are cleaned and polished, sharp fret ends are dressed smooth and a new set of strings is installed.

If you are not sure what type of set up is best for your guitar I am very happy to look at it and give you some advice.
