Setting up a guitar — what does it mean?
- Putting on new strings
- Wiping down the body, neck and fingerboard
- Checking and setting neck relief by making adjustments to the truss rod
- Setting the bridge plate (for floating bridges)
- Setting the bridge height
- Checking the nut height
The guitars the foundation donates are not set up. If you would like to hire one of our inspectors to do this for your instruments at a discounted rate of $35 each, please email Robert who will put you in touch with the inspector directly.
