Guitar Set Up


The guitar setup is effectively the same having a car serviced. Over time the geometry of the instrument changes for a number of factors, making it hard to play.


Guitar Truss Rod Adjustment


Guitar necks have difficult time. They are under tension caused by the strings - due to factors such as humidity, they can effectively move. At Ackworth Guitar Setups we adjust the truss rod so that guitar neck is in the correct amount of tension and not displaying too much back bow or forward bow.

Guitar Action

Manufacturers all specify what they percieve the correct action to be for their guitars. We work on your instrument to get the height of the strings fromthe fretboard to the correct heights.

Guitar Intonation

What is guitar intonation? With musical instruments, intonation refers to pitch accuracy—the extent to which the notes formed are in tune, versus being flat or sharp. We will dial in the guitar intonation using state of the art tuners.
