The term set up refers to how well a stringed instrument is adjusted and how well it plays.
Many factors come together to determine how well a guitar is set up. These would be:
- The string height above the fretboard
- A nut and saddle that is well fitted and set to the correct height
- A precisely set truss rod, creating the correct string relief
- Accurately set intonation
Here I have mentioned just the essentials. A guitar that is set up correctly will be a pleasure to play. It will play in tune in all positions on the neck. The general feel of the instrument under the player’s fingers would be first rate and the overall sound of the instrument of high-quality.
