I recently had my Ibanez 540R in for a setup at a local music store - not a big national chain.
The guy did a decent enough job but the action is still a little high, mainly on the upper frets.
However, I'm wondering about the trem setup. I was under the impression that when you have everything balanced out and ready to lock the nut, the fine tuners on the bridge should be roughly half-way down. This allows for fine tuning when a little sharp or flat. Some of the fine tuners are almost all the way down - a couple are ALL the way down.
Should I take it back or if that's such a bad setup to begin with, cut my losses and take it to someone else to do more to lower the action and get the tuning straightened out?
Go back and say you aren't happy with it and ask what they will do to fix it.
Don't kick up a fuss, be very polite and explain it isn't really how you like it and ask if they can tweak it.
However, if you didn't specify a low action when you handed it in, then it's just a lesson learned. The 540R feels rather strat like and they may have thought you wanted a more conservative setup.
