how accurate the fretted note is to the actual note is. example, although the 12th fret of the high e string should be an e, if your guitar isnt set up correctly then it'll be slightly flat or sharp of the actual e note. shouldnt be something to worry about if you cant hear it. it does become more dramatic as you get higher up the neck

^ Exactly. With guitar specifically, it's adjusting the string to the proper length so that the notes all sound correctly up the length of the neck.
