Can anyone with some experience give us a rough idea how often a guitar should be set-up.
Should you base it on when you think the guitar needs it, should it be based on how much you play or should it be a routine maintence thing like every 3-6 months or so?
I'm just looking for some basic rules of thumb or opinions.
I take in all 6 of my guitars, 8 if you count my accoustics for a pro setup once a year. From there I simply fine tune them as needed till their next setup appointment.
Also nobody has mentioned strings in this thread. Personally I find them essential for a clear crisp tone. I change the ones on my main guitars every 2 to 4 wks. Others as needed.
