To learn more about the the setup tool sets used in this video and how to setup your own guitar visit MusicNomad’s Setup Hub: https://www.musicnomadcare.com/How-To-Advice/Setup-Hub/ Since 2001, Geoff Luttrell Master Guitar Tech of SF Guitarworks and Sonoma County Guitarworks https://sfguitarworks.com/ has setup thousands of guitars and also teaches countless guitar players how to setup their own guitars in his setup workshops. He does an incredible job, like no other, of breaking down each setup task explaining in layman’s terms why your guitar will play and sound better by performing each setup task and then leads you through each step, giving helpful tips and tricks along the way. Using MusicNomad’s Precision Gauges and Tools, the setup process becomes so simple to perform as you will see for yourself. Follow along with your own guitar and you will be amazed that yes you can setup your own electric guitar. Not only is it fun, but a properly setup guitar takes your playing and sound to a whole new level. Keep in mind, that the steps he goes through in the exact order can be applied to any electric guitar with a fixed radius bridge. If you have individually adjustable saddles there is a slight change in the order you perform switching the steps 2 and 3 (doing the string action followed by the string radius in individually adjustable saddles). We have a video that shows how to setup an electric guitar with individually adjustable saddles also.
