Electric Guitars/Guitar setup


Greetings to you.
I have Fender standard HSS startocaster guitar, made in Mexico.
I had to disassemble my guitar (the neck from the body) because of travelling and i left my guitar for a year with no strings at all.
I believe that my guitar needs a setup and i searched in youtube but i never found an easy video to teach me that.
Can you please show me how to setup my guitar?

I also have another question, please:
My sister has a e-drums and I would like to have a PA system or something else cheaper to be used for both my e-guitar and her e-drums together, is there any option for both of us?
God bless you.

Hi Margreat, while setting up a guitar is not too complicated & can easily be taught to someone, it's not really something that can be explained online. If I were there with you, I could walk you through it, but it would take a few times of you doing it before you really got the feel for it. I'd suggest that you find a guitar tech near you who would be willing to teach you how to do it & just pay him to show you how to do your guitar.

As for a small PA system, there's a bunch you can look at here:


Hope that helps, if you need anything else, just drop me a line!
Peace - J.

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years & tour regularly with my band River City Junction. We play a mix of Blues, Jazz, Funk, Motown, R&B & Classic Rock so I can help answer any questions related to these genres as well. I also have extensive experience using many different brands of guitars, amplifiers & effects. I do most of my own work on my guitars, & I also build & repair my own pedals & tube amps, so I can help with questions of a technical nature with regards to these subjects as well.
