Set Up

Well its been a few weeks now that the guitar has been strung up .

I am not sure that I have it set up properly , although I have followed the info that came with itand artlicles that are on the net.

I still have the action set a bit high .

It doesn't sound too bad ,but it does seem to be lacking something (Might be my attempt at playing it too) and the intonation on the low E string is a little out.

I am tossing up now if I should keep "fiddling" with it, or take it and get it set up or, at least played and looked at by sombody else.

This really sound like a Cop Out hey!

Hi Ted,

Its good to see that you are around again.

The guitar sounds OK but I am not real happy with the setup.

I have had a play around with it and I put some heavier guage strings on it which probably made it worse.

All up though I don't have any regrets with the build but I do need to spend some time playing with the setup.
