Введение

You just got a new guitar or bass, sweet! But you notice that it just doesn’t feel right to you. The strings are a little hard to press down, and even when your instrument is in tune, every note you fret sounds like it isn’t. Well, that’s where setting up your guitar comes in to play! In this guide I will be showing you how to adjust your guitar neck and string action to make your guitar feel like the guitar of your dreams.

Also works on electric bass guitar!

  1. DO NOT do this too quickly. This step most likely won't be done on the first try. Make small adjustments, check the neck, and then adjust again. Turn your allen wrench A QUARTER OF A TURN AT A TIME. Grab an Allen wrench that will fit into the truss rod. Make sure to detune your guitar to prevent your strings from snapping during this process.

    • If your neck is bowed, you'll want to tighten the truss rod. You do this by turning your Allen wrench clockwise. If your neck has a hump to it, loosen the truss rod by turning the Allen wrench counterclockwise.

    • The slot for the truss rod can be in a slot on the headstock, or under a plate on the headstock that you'll have to unscrew. Some guitars also have the truss rod located on the body of the guitar, at the base of the neck.

  2. Keep checking your neck, and checking for any fret buzz or dead spots (spots where the note doesn't play or ring out long enough).  The goal is to have as little fret buzz and dead spots as possible. Keep checking your neck, and checking for any fret buzz or dead spots (spots where the note doesn't play or ring out long enough).

  3. Locate the saddles of your guitar bridge (the part of the bridge that the string sits on). Raise the action of the saddles by turning the Allen wrench clockwise. Lower the saddles by turning the Allen wrench counterclockwise. There really is no right answer for how high/low the action of the strings should be. It's up to player preference.

  6. Check your guitar intonation by playing the twelfth fret note of each string, and then playing the twelfth fret harmonic of each string. Grab your screwdriver and turn the screws below the saddles counterclockwise if the fretted note sounds higher in pitch than the harmonic, and turn the screw clockwise if the fretted note sounds lower in pitch than the harmonic.
