A guitars playabillity relies on many factors, all of which need checking and possible adjustment. For most guitars a "Professional setup" is the best approach.
⦁ Fret level
⦁ Fret dress, Recrown and Fret polish
⦁ Nut height adjustment
⦁ Saddle adjustment, height and intonation.
⦁ Truss rod adjustment
⦁ Floating bridge adjustment
If you wish to change your fret size or your frets are too worn and need replacing, you may need to opt for a total or partial refret. Upgrading your frets to some Dunlop jumbo frets can change an average playing guitar into a blues players dream.
All fret sizes catored for.
A total refret, includes a "Pro Setup"
One further option is to line all cavities within your guitar body with copper. This process creates a "Faraday cage" and prevents unwanted radio wave interference. This option is great for home
recording and live work, where a clean signal is important.
⦁ All cavities copper lined, including rear of scratchplate.
⦁ Grounding checked

Does your guitar need an MOT?
I will clean the fret board, polish all frets, oil the fret board, fine clean and polish the whole guitar, including hardwear. Clean electrics if needed. Replace strings. Check the guitar for any faults and advise accordingly.

Upgrade your guitar to a bone nut and/or saddle, for increased tone and sustain. All bone upgrades are bespoke and handmade by myself.
Nut height and nut slot depth are very important factors in a guitar setup. Having the correct action over the first fret ensures comfortable feeling open chords. To achieve the best tone, half the diameter on the string should be showing above the nut.
