High string height " Action "
It's the most common problem with the guitars that come through my door. Makes the guitar difficult, if not impossible to play.
High action, or high string height is caused by four things normally.
1-Too much relief in the neck. " too much concave bow."
2-The cuts or notches in the nut are not deep enough, " mostly on new guitars surprisingly "
3-The saddle needs to be reduced in height. " easy fix "
4-Or over time , the top has bellied. " risen up "
These issues can all be fixed.
Lowering the action is achieved by addressing a combination of these issues.
It will feel and play like a different guitar with the action set properly.
If you would like me to look at your guitar. And discuss what needs to be done to get it playing properly again.
bring it by anytime. NO COST to look at it.
Message me here, or text 631-3491 to arrange a time.
