Hey, I got my guitar about 6 months ago from musiciansfriend and everything is ok I think? I never really set it up... I lowered the action a little bit but thats it. After reading a bunch of set-up threads I am starting to think what if my guitar isnt set up correctly. How do you know if its not set-up correctly? Is there a way?
If it doesn't feel right, chances are it's not setup right. Also, considering it's from musiciansfriend, it's most likely not set up at all. Go to projectguitar.com, they should have some stuff.
Yeah just search for Intonating and adjusting the Truss Rod.
If it doesnt feel right or the notes are incorrect you should change it other than that just leave it if you like it.
If you are not confident to give it a go yourself just take it along to a decent guitar shop and they will sort it out for you. If you do have a go yourself just be carefull to make small changes and see what happens.
