: I just purchased a a/e bass guitar that has never been set up.What is involved in setting up an acoustic bass guitar?
: What does"neck joint set"mean?
This group is actually for upright bass questions, but I can answer your questions.
Set up usually means a truss rod adjustment; a more advanced setup might also involve altering/replacing the bridge saddle and working on frets, if necessary.
A set neck joint is one that is glued in, as opposed to a bolt-on or neck-through instrument.
