The fellow I use charges $45.00 for a standard setup.

Yeah around 40-50 unless the neck is super messed up.     

Re: Setting Up The "Action"?

If you're a handy DIY type of person, guitar setup (which impacts the action) isn't really a huge mystery. It's a finesse type of job, and having a few essential tools is also part of the job. Here's a terrific article from "Guitar Player" magazine about doing it yourself: … itar-setup

If you don't have the tools or the confidence to attempt it on your own, then the $40 - $50 for a music store pro to do it is probably money well spent.
