i gotta les paul junior recently and have a big gig coming up. i was thinkin bout takin it in and havin a professional set it up. but then i wonder is that really necessary? its got the oldschool bridge and so you cant mess with the intonation to much anyway. and it feels fine to play. this is just me being paranoid and wanting to be tottaly preparded for this gig. should i throw in some cash to have someone check it out? or just tweak it a bit myself and go for it?

Nobody in the audience is going to notice even the shittiest setup guitars. You are good. Have fun.

as long as it is playing fine for you, and you are liking it, there isn't a reason.

Honestly a good setup is easy to jdo, just a little time consuming. As long as you payed attention and didnt rush it when you last set it up you will be fine. As salamander said no one in the audience will even notice if your intonation is off as long as you sound good to them.

there's your answer.

if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
