Yes, read Rich's site. That should help you to understand how to make setup adjustments yourself. No one has answered you on the "truthful" part, though. It's important that you know that what he said about "breaking a guitar in" and giving it time is ridiculous. A guitar is either set up properly or it is not. That goes for a '57 vintage as well as one coming off the assembly line today. Time can only change the setup as the wood changes. But that's also true of every guitar with necks made from wood. New strings are noisier if only because they have the highest treble frequency content at that time.
By the way, doesn't the 470 have a floyd-licensed trem? If so, raising the G string is not possible without disassembling the bridge. You can only raise the bass or treble side with the studs. Raising the bass side stud a little can be a way of reducing buzz on the low E and A, although it has to be raised quite a lot to overcome high and low frets, or an overly tightened truss rod.
