Repair Services Notes

1. String action is set for the style the customer prefers. Low action with a little fret buzz is the general setup type for most electric guitars with standard light string gauge. However, there are different expectations for action when it comes to different styles of guitar playing. For example, blues players who play tight radius vintage Fender Stratocasters or Telecasters will prefer medium-high action in order to have zero "fret-out" on bends and minimal buzzing across the neck with heavy pick attack. Rock and metal players prefer low-medium action for fast yet versatile playability. Fusion/jazz/prog metal players generally prefer lowest possible action for maximum finger gymnastics and speed.

2. Setups are performed with the use of measurements of overall string height taken from the middle of the string (12th fret) and the first fret, neck relief, and neck angle in order to keep quality of work consistent. Personal playing style and string type will affect these measurement, so it is important that you specify your preferred style in order to receive the best results.

**Fret leveling an crowning can take more time depending on fret material and alloy ratio, and how much leveling is required.
