Just want to encourage others to consider learning how to do this sort of thing because of the great difference made by a bit of time and effort. I've gotten so that I can do set-ups and am now branching out into basic fret work, like polishing and removing/reshaping rough ends. I'm very happy with the results that are coming from this. I have quite a few guitars and it'd be silly to pay someone else to do this on all of them - that was my main motivation to learn to do this stuff. Lots of guitars means lots of guitar maintenance! I spent a few months researching and gathering relevant tools, then practiced on my daughter's second hand Epiphone (edit) LP Junior ($35 from Guitar Center). Well worth learning to do in my case.
