Setting up and Adjusting your Electric Guitar – Walkthru

When buying a new electric guitar you’d probably think that it would be in top-notch playing condition as soon as you pull it out of the box. The fact that your new guitar is made of wood…..and wood moves! Temperature and humidity both effect wood and by the time your guitar gets to you it may need a minor adjustment or two. Additionally, as your guitar ages, you may have to perform periodic adjustments in order to keep your guitar in good playing condition. This is normal for all guitars.

The following tips concern general, basic set-up…however, if you are not sure of what is being described here or are not sure of your capability to carry out the instructions, do yourself a favor and take your axe to a qualified guitar technician.


All electric guitars have an adjustable metal truss rod that runs down the center of the neck. (Figure 1)

The truss rod adjustment can be both simple and complex at the same time. On the simple side, a minor adjustment to straighten a neck with too much concave bow or to relieve a convex bow is possibly all that is needed to make a dramatic improvement to your guitars playability. On the complex side, adjusting the rod alters other aspects of the set-up such as overall action, string height and intonation.….and YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR GUITAR PERMANENTLY IF THE ADJUSTMENT IS NOT MADE CORRECTLY. If you feel confident that you can make this adjustment…read on.

Bombadil – “Barcelona” [MUSIC]

Bombadil released this mp3 on their website to promote the release of their album, Tarpits and Canyonlands, along with Spain victory at the World Cup. The album has 15 tracks in which “Barcelona” did not make the final cut of, so they decided to give the song away to their fans. This song was one of the few songs written by a friend of the band, Dan Shvartsman. It’s amazing that this song didn’t make the cut for the album; I definitely advise checking this one out here.
