A while back, I built 3 acoustic guitars. I set them up but wasn't happy with the set up. I have wanted to get back to them and so now is the time.
My main goal was to adjust the action. This required removing the neck followed by adjusting the nut, saddle/bridge and the height of the fret board where it attaches to the body. The fret board was glued down (what was I thinking?). The 2 cutaway guitars came up with minimal damage to the body and in fact given the height changes I was trying to accomplish, all worked out great. The full body guitar had more damage but still worked out ok. I think I still need a bit of saddle/bridge work on the full body guitar but the 2 cutaway guitars are in awesome shape.
In making these adjustments, I also removed some weird resonances that were happening so the guitars sound even better. I still may have a few more adjustments to make but will need to play them for a bit before figuring out what to try.
One of the cutaways is now my oldest son's (Xander) and I hope that he enjoys it.
