The setup procedures and specifications for a Fender Stratocaster that is equipped with the strings that come on the instrument from the factory vary for a players personal preferences. Many times, if you plan to change string gauges to your taste, you may need to have the guitar set-up to compensate for the changes in string sizes. Modifications of the factory specs may also be made (within limited parameters) to adjust for your individual playing style or application (i.e., how hard you pick, strum or fret the guitar). All part of a guitar’s set-up procedures.

Guitar Repair Grand Prairie

Every so often someone asks me a simple, and yet intriguing, question: Is this a good guitar? The question may seem obvious in its implication, but it really isn’t. In my opinion, there are at least four levels at which a guitar can be “good”.

  • Technically Good Guitars
  • Correct Neck to Body Fit
  • Functional Neck Tension Rod
  • Guitars That You Like

These are some of the most important qualities a guitar can have. On the assumption that you are not buying a guitar with concern about long term value, the most important quality a good guitar has is that you like it.

It doesn’t matter what anyone says, it doesn’t matter whether it is technically good, it doesn’t matter that it has no monetary value, if you like it, if it does what you want it to do – it is a good guitar.
