    I am interested in learning how to set up my basses, guitars etc.

    Not interested in performing major repairs, restorations etc.

    Is there a book out there that shows in detail how to set up guitars no matter what kind of guitar it is?

    I don't want to have to run to a local luthier every time I am in need of a set up.

    Jerzy drozd put one out that is supposed to be pretty good. I haven't looked at it yet.

    Took me two tries with the fender bass setup info from the above link to get the hang of it. I found I needed to run the pups a little lower than recommended, but that's what setup is really all about, making your bass work best for you.
