How to setup your electric guitar

Yesterday during a gig I dropped my beloved Fender Stratocaster ‘head on’, and I could tell right away that the neck had moved and the whole setup had gone out of the window. Rather than taking the guitar to be setup I did a bit of research online and decided to give it a go myself. I had done this before, but never did the whole process from start to finish. I must say the following video shows every step in such detail, you cannot get it wrong!

Thanks to Pbsguitar for porting this great video. My Strat is back in great shape.
