What is a Pro Setup? One of the reasons we started Riff City Guitar was to offer hometown service online. One of the most unknown facts of buying an instrument online is that, in most cases, the online store sends you an instrument just as it arrived from the factory. However, very few instruments are ready to play at that stage. When comparing prices, always ask if the price of an instrument includes a professional setup. If it does not, expect to spend an additional $35 to $60 at a local luthier's shop in your area.
We set up all stringed instruments of $99 or more by a professional luthier. Our setups get rave reviews throughout the country. We encourage you to call or add comments to your order if you have any setup preferences. By default we set the instruments up for the best combination of playability and weather-related flexibility.
