Set up Epiphone Dot

Recommended Posts

Muzikron is our resident tech. He has been doing that for a lot of years, so we regard

his opinion highly.

It is true that a good setup is easier to maintain, than to do yourself, unless you

are especially good with tools, and have the correct tools to start with.

If you are interested in learning more there are a few really good books that you can buy.

The book I always recommend is:


Guitar Players Guide to Repair - by Dan Erliwine.


I could give you the specs, but if you are not really good at doing some of the

things a good setup requires, you can damage your guitar to the point you will

have to take it to a tech.

I'm just glad to see more people willing to do their own set up. I think it's part of the responsibility in ownership of a wooden instrument, which will react to changes in its environment, requiring small adjustments from time to time. It's not that difficult, and well worth the effort, but then again, if you own many dozens, it may be worth the money to pay someone else to do it. I don't have that problem, and actually, feel lucky to have both an acoustic and one electric, which covers all the bases for me. [thumbup]
