Acoustic Setup Lesson


The acoustic setup lesson covers more technical information and often runs a little longer than the electric session.  We design the class specifically, catering to you and your instrument’s needs, and we encourage you to bring more than one type of acoustic instrument if you have them.  For instance, bring a ukulele or banjo, in addition to your guitar so we can compare and contrast.



Our setup lessons are designed to assess what you need and want to know to better understand the functioning of your instrument, focusing on how to make it sound and play to its complete potential.  Bring in your guitar and we will address everything possible in 90 minutes.  Upon scheduling, let us know what kind of guitar you intend to bring and what kinds of issue you want to discuss.  The primary subjects we address in the acoustic setup lesson primarily include:

  • Humidity
  • Adjusting Neck Relief & Nut Slots
  • Saddle Height Calculations & Adjustments
  • Saddle & Nut Materials, upgrades
  • Conditioning & Cleaning
  • Proper Restringing
  • Tools & Resources

You can bring up to two instruments, but understand we will only focus on what we have time for.  See the calendar below for available times.
