I'm having the same problem. They quoted 30 quid plus the price of the strings I want. My guitar is only worth 200 quid (RRP), and I only paid 135, so it seems a lot of money to spend. I feel comfortable with any adjustments besides truss rod, which I'm far too scared to do. But I don't know exactly where everything should be, because I'm a noob.

£16 plus strings. Pretty good deal considering he's a proper luthier.
there is no fear in this heart.

Unfortunately, they have a set fee of 30 pounds. I'm probably just gonna fiddle with it until I get it right. I have risen and lowered the action a fair amount and I'm fairly happy with the result. Checked the intonation myself, and I (think/hope) the neck is ok. There's only a bit of fret buzz on 1 or 2 strings on one particular fret (11th or 12th I think). I should list all the problems and try to sort them all out one by one, or pay for someone else to do it.
