I recently purchased a new Dell'Arte Hommage and it is being shipped to me from across the country. I have never bought a guitar online before. Will it require that I bring it to a luthier to be setup upon arrival or should I inspect it first? Also, I plan on switching the strings from Galli GSL10 (.45) to Savarez Argentine 1610 (.45).
One reason I ask is because it is easier for me to make an appointment with my luthier ahead of time and I would like to have the setup done as quickly as possible because I am very excited to play this new guitar!
