    I wish I would have known about setting up my guitar.

    In hind sight - My first guitar at 14 yrs old badly needed its intonation done.
    String adjustment and pickup height probably could have been altered as well.

    Wish I’d learned intervals properly and stuck to learning one octave/chord tones then moving them about instead of trying to memorise 2/3 octave...6 string shapes/patterns etc

    I wish I had not learned this the hard way.
    Your guitar is only yours if you have "proof of purchase", and it is only worth what you insure it for.
