Steve - is it too late to sign me up for a setup? If not, can you add me to the list and let me know the time? I'll PM you too.

Thanks!

(Sorry for the cross-thread posts - wasn't sure which one was best for my request)

I would like to have a setup by Greg if there is still room. I might not be able to do it on Sunday afternoon, though. Thanks.

(snip)[/quote]

Pretty much, on an acoustic guitar, the ONLY variation that's somewhat personal is the string heigths above the fret wires. That can be somewhat customized for a finger-picker versus strummer, even light-strummer versus heavy strummer, given the gauge of strings you prefer for their tones. Key to how low you can go is encountering that dreaded condition known as [url=http://frets.com/FRETSPages/Luthier/Technique/Setup/BuzzDiagnosis/buzzintro.html][b][i]fret buzz[/i][/b][/url].

Do you prefer a lighter-gauge string with a medium-heigth setup, or a lower-heigth setup with a slightly heavier-gauge string? [color=blue]This is something you sort of learn about yourself with experience.[/color] You can [url=http://www.guildguitars.com/resources/guild_guitar_setup.php]get an idea about the acoustic guitar setup procedure [b]here[/b][/url] along with some "factory" suggestions for tolerances. Except at the higher end, most new acoustic guitars arrive from the factory set at the higher end of the tolerance range.

If you REALLY get into this issue, you can always carry several saddles and string gauges to swap between lower, medium, and higher. Then too, there are a few acoustic guitar models floating around with an [b]adjustable saddle[/b].

Wow, look at what one little mention has turned into. I figured there were others like myself who would not have (or didn't know) any local setup people. Not working out bad for Greg either as he is in line to make a really good chunk of change that weekend.

Steve, if there is room for another guitar setup, I would like to put my name in. I will be there Sunday afternoon if there is an opening, hopefully as soon after lunch as possible.

Thanks,

Not sure how the location is laid out, but I have my guitar set up 3:30-4 then the student group at 4 - 5 will I make it to the group on time?


Also can I sit in on other groups where I am not signed up? Just to listen in...?

Thanks,

I am searching for a thread that would teach me what I need to know to walk into a guitar repair shop and tell them what I want when I say "personal guitar setup".

I feel like I should not just walk in and say "fix this so it works best for me" without knowing what questions to ask and what specifcally I am looking for.

I have never adjusted anything on any of my guitars (except changing strings, and that took a while to be confident about!) so they are freash from the factory set up.

I am really anxious to see what a difference it might make to have my instruments dialed in for my height, fingers, etc. so please, please, please if you are rading this and can help guide me, do so!

Thanks so much!

Mike

P.S. - I know this guy was in Nashville at the Convention, I am not lookig for a name, just some talking points.

Viet,

Yes, I'm sure you can just drop off your guitar earlier in the day and Greg will work on them as he gets to them.

Thanks,

Hi Steve,
This is a dumb question but I'd like to know if I can have Greg setting my guitars while I can attend the Master class at the same time? I do not want to miss Johnny Hiland Master class which will take place the same with with my appointment for guitar setup.

Thanks alot.

Viet

[size=18]Brian,

Sorry. I added you to the list. The reason I didn't have you is because I didn't have a survey back from you. Perhaps you haven't received the survey. I'll resend it on Monday.

I hope you are well and I look forward to seeing you and your wife again this year!

[size=18]Hello all,

This is the official list of sign ups for Greg to do a personal setup on your guitar.

(Greg will also be doing a master class on guitar setup and maintenance that is open to all who registered.)

This sign up list is for him to personally do a setup on your guitar. The cost is $45 plus a set of strings which Greg will provide. You will pay Greg directly.

I did the times on a first come-first serve basis. If you need to swap around that is fine. Also be prepared for these times to be flexible depending on how Greg is doing.

If your name is not on this list and you are coming to the event and would like your guitar setup just let me know on this thread or fill out a survey and I will add you to the list.

Here is the list as of July 13th for personal guitar setups by Greg Voros.
