It's like holding down the loud pedal on a piano . . . such a full sound.
I can see why these guitars are so highly thought of!
But the strings were high, and I'd been considering removing the saddles to file/sand them down, to lower the action.
I was planning on spending a few hours sanding down the TWO bridges. (Yep, TWO. This thing is in PERFECT tune.)
It was 100 times easier than I expected.
Instead of one pickup, this acoustic guitar has SIX pickups, all integrated into the saddles in the bridge.
No wonder it sounds so good when it's plugged in.
And UNDER the saddle 'channel bars' - SHIMS!
When you pop them out, the metal channel holding the saddle (with the integrated pickups) is lowered as a unit, and the action is lowered.
The whole shebang gets lowered, and the saddle now sits lower in the bridge.
It's shipped with all the shims in place, with the highest action.
Different thicknesses give you a choice of 3 different heights.
The guys who designed this are smart.
I remove all the shims, because I need low action for my music.
And it's a dream to play and listen to.
All different styles, all originals. Looking for folks who can sing harmonies, m/f.
