I bought my guitar a couple months ago. Its a PRS SE, and so far i've changed its strings twice. People have told me its good to get a guitar set up when you buy it, and its 70 dollars at my local guitar center... so should I?...

A Guitar Center setup is expensive. IMO it's worth it to learn how to do it yourself.

if it's difficult to play, yes. If you think it's fine then no.


its not difficult to play, but i was just wondering about intonation and the height of my pickups etc...

If its easy too play then dont worry about it, but if you start playing live and recording and you're gonna be using it a lot then i would get it set up.

Well... are you not happy with the action? Any fret buzz... at all? Intonation fine?

It's not massively hard to do yourself to be honest, and will save you $70
I just managed to set up an FR from Drop D to Drop B in 20 minutes earlier so your PRS shouldn't take very long at all

You can test intonation yourself with a piano (if you have good ears) or a chromatic tuner. Pickup height is very easy to change and there's pretty much no risk involved. Just turn the screws on either side. A good pickup height is really only found through experimenting, and honestly, the difference it makes is very small, unless you go extreme. You probably don't need to change it. The only thing that can wreak havoc on your guitar really is a poor truss rod adjustment.
