I've never paid anyone to set up a guitar of mine. Which is not the same as saying it wouldn't have been a good idea once or twice. But I think I've reached an understanding about truss rods - - given the choice in any new guitar, I'm not gonna buy one that adjusts at the heel. In my small flock of Fender guitars, most are the traditional style, and what a PITA it is when trying to fine-tune relief on those instruments. On the other hand, how sweet it is to just put that wrench into the headstock and make a quick adjustment. Patience is a virtue, I know, but the older I get, the more hurrier I am.
