    I guess if you go on the road with cheaper guitars you need to bring a few

    Well on the road backups are a good idea--no matter what price point you use

    And sometimes what you see on the road are replicas & the guitar player leaves the pricey stuff at home.

    I guess if went on the road in a big way (unlikely) I'd have to consider what I'd want to bring with me and I might want to buy something especially for the task.

    I would also set aside some money o bring along a guitar tech to take care of it all...

    If it was a big enough tour you'd probably have to have a guitar tech on staff

    I wish I could afford one now--on call--so whenever I wanted or needed one.

    I have a couple that need new strings--and I hate changing strings.

    but I do--because they sound better that way.

    I think a guitar tech around here is like $50 for a complete setup. What do they cost up there?

    Depends on what you are looking for--but probably more than $50.

    There is a store that will change your strings for $10--but no real setup--just supply the strings & $10.
    But I will still do it myself.
    But you could pay $80 or more, depending on how quickly you need it done, who does it, and what you want/need done.
