Just as I've described in this case - simple action/intonation adjustment. Guitar is new so frets and nut are fine.
Then yeah, that's ridiculous. This tech must be in high demand, or very jaded.
Didn't want to name but do feel like this is excessive considering my bandmate was very clear in his comms (I've seen the screenshots) in just asking for the action and intonation to be done only.
He needs to be clear about action adjustment. He is probably talking about bridge height adjustment
... but don't forget that too many, brand new guitars have high action at the nut as well. To adjust that takes more time and skill. Just saying, not trying to justify his pricing.

Back when Adrian was doing setups I dont think I even bothered doing my own string changes.

Now days, I still have no setup skills, and very old strings.

Ramsay Phillips is the guy. Glendowie. But he’s got a week old baby, so his concentration levels may not be 100% at present.

Just had my Les Paul setup and a few frets addressed by Trevor Binford: https://m.facebook.com/binfordluthiery

10/10 Perfect job (and he didn't scratch it 👌). Recommended.
