Topic: Lowering action
I know this question has been covered before and I have researched it some but still need some advice or maybe just some encouragement. I have an acoustic electric guitar that was moderately priced. My budget is small, as a matter of fact it takes most of what I make to keep the family under shelter, fed, clothed etc, so taking the guitar to a tech, luthier, repair shop or whatever just isn't going to happen. I am very happy with my guitar, it suits my needs well. I play only for my entertainment. I think the strings are just a bit high though. I know what to to do, because of what I have learned here and at other sites but I am hesitant for fear of ruining my guitar. I believe just sanding the bottom of the saddle down a bit would help a lot. Is this someting I could really mess up? Should I get another saddle to have standing by in case I make a mess of the old one? Should I maybe just get a new saddle and try and shave that one down? Help please!
