5.0 out of 5 stars Markasky Guitar Setup Review April 30, 2008
This DVD is put together in a nice modular fashion and Markasky does a good job showing step by step procedures on how to setup a guitar.

My 35 year old guitar desperately needed setting up. I wanted to bring it in to a professional for repair, but feared it would be too costly. Instead, I decided to give this video a shot. It helped me realize my problem was some of my strings were too low and explained, in layman's terms, how to fix the problem. I also was able to learn all the different components of my guitar.

I would highly recommend this video to anyone who wants to learn how to setup a fender style electric or bass.
