MAJOR SETUP AND ADJUSTMENT
If you can't get your action down because of fret buzz etc. your guitar probably needs a fret dress. The major set up includes all features of the minor set up, plus a full fret dress and fret reshaping to allow maximum playing comfort and the lowest possible playing action.
