Do Kiesel guitars come set up from the factory ?

Yes, but if you have specific strings you'd like to send in, or tuning you want to use, let your salesperson know at the time of order (not after).

I've been resisting my impulse to reply to this post but I had an experience on Saturday that ties in to your question.

Firstly, I have never purchased a guitar with my preferred strings and my preferred setup and I personally own over twenty. Which means that every one required another setup with intonation adjustment and sometimes a truss rod adjustment. I'm glad that I took the time to learn how to do it myself

Secondly, I was at a local boutique builders shop on Saturday when a guy walks in, picks up the most expensive guitar in the shop and then begins to complain that the guitar is setup is wrong. I pick it up and it feels and sounds great to me.

The difference is 1mm. This particular builder sets his guitars at a 2mm string height at the 17 fret which is perfect for my style of playing but apparently not for this guy as he prefers 1mm or lower. LOWER, Wow :|
