Instruments can not be setup by “feel” or by “eye”, there are too many optical illusions created and inconsistencies using those methods. Instruments are best set up using math, hence the ruler. This
book has all measurements listed for each part of your instrument. You can use this book to get every guitar or bass you own to play amazing!
