Fret Levelling, Crowning And Setup?

Recommended Posts

hey folks,

i have a few questions related to fret levelling and crowning as well as a setup.

i am under the impression that a brand new bolt-on neck should be attached to a body under string tension to factor in any reaction before fret levelling and crowning but i've read otherwise that it can be done prior to assembly and any excess relieve can be dialled out be adjusting the truss rod.

i believed the frets should be on a straight plane with relieve factored in for the lowest possible action without buzz and fretting out. so isn't it redundant to fret l/c on an unattached neck that never been strung up before since string tension is going to change the fret level to a certain degree?

that said, if i am to build a guitar and have it setup in a cooler and drier climate, will it need another setup if i am to travel with it to a hot and humid country?
