How is the intonation? Does it sound stuffy? Is the timbre consistent from note to note?
That would be a sign that it could be adjusted better, but...
Sometimes it doesn't have any of those issues, at least not in any way that is obvious even to an excellent player who is intimately familiar with their instrument.
Even more so if it had an overhaul, which likely means it needed an overhaul, so it's an improvement from how it used to be. Especially if it was a slow and gradual decline, which is the case most of the time.
Only after it's adjusted you notice that it's suddenly much better.
