Yes, no question about whether buyer can set it up by himself. There are so many tutorials etc. Truss rod tighten, bridge down and so on BUT if the nut is not correctly cut you are pretty much stuck, starting with the nut cutting etc. is not really welcomed as DIY.
That's about the only thing that isn't reversible. At least a nut is easily replaceable for a qualified luthier. At least you can lube it yourself.

I worked in a music store once upon a time. We'd set up all the guitars, but we'd do the best job on the guitar we most wanted to get rid of that week ...

Ha! Another little "trick" is to tune everything in the shop down a step to D, so they all play just that tiny bit easier. Most people don't carry a tuner and won't catch it. It works, too!

In the Age of Information Ignorance is a choice.

I like that! A lot! You can apply it to a wide range of things these days ... unfortunately. 🤔
