    There are a few steps that should be taken each time an instrument is set up. Doing these steps in the proper order is critical to achieve the desired end result.

    1. Tune the instrument to the pitch it will be played.

    2. Set the relief.

    3. Set the string heights.

    4. Set the intonation.

    5. Set the pickup heights.

    Done. Okay, it is that easy, but here

                  That string action guage is very cool. I may have to order one myself!

                            You may want to loosen the strings before turning the truss rod nut.

                            Capo the first fret to measure string height? wouldn't the measurement change after you take the capo off? is there a reason for this?
