    I’d say adjust the relief. Then adjust the action at the saddles. Then adjust intonation.
    Nothing to it. Setting up your guitar is a skill that everyone should learn.

    Guitar necks are made of wood. As such, they're going to expand and contract slightly as moisture levels change.

    Adjusting a truss rod is one of those things you need to learn, to get the most out of any guitar. It literally takes a second or two to do.

    Any guitar repair shop or luthier will set it up no problem.Although I can do a set up myself being a lazy sod
    I take all my guitars to a local luthier who will set it up in a lot less time than it takes me.However be aware that pick up height
    is non adjustable on the ASS

    Congrats! Basic set up skills are a must. It's a balancing act, and it's very rewarding to be able to set the action right where you want it!
    like Beej said, wood moves, and very few guitars won't need a little tweak from time to time...

    lowered saddles where I thought I wanted them
    tighten truss rod - still buzz - loosened truss rod - still buzz
    slow tighten again - stopping and checking and it magically got close
    then readjusted saddles

    Setup tip:
    Truss rod 'generally' effects action from the nut to about the 12th fret
    Saddle height effects action from about the 12th fret to the heel of the neck
