I recently bought an SR300dx at the local guitar center. They made me take one in a box. When I got it home, I noticed there was a bow in the neck. I took it back, and they had their luthier do a setup. I learned a couple of things All luthiers are not the same. and Don't be afraid to do your own setup. First, I would like to know where thy get these guys that work on their instruments. I had a personal luthier who worked on all my stuff, and he was excellent. Heck, he built guitars. But he isnt around. so I downloaded the Manual. I went throught the procedures in the manual for the setup. and It isn't Rocket Science. Anyway after Guitar center got through with it, it had a bad string rattle. (not a fret buzz) When I finished with it, it had a lower action, no fret buzz, no string rattle, and The sound was astounding. I would have never thought that a little adjustment would make the much difference in the Depth of the bass coming out of this instrument, and the intonation is within 1 cent from 1st to 12th fret. Needless to say, I am very pleased with this bass now Just thought this might be worth sharing for the newbies out there.
