Tanglewood – Lowered action

What if the action on your acoustic is a little high?  It can be an easy fix.

This one is a little high so I’m going to give it a general setup.

Starting with the neck relief.  I always start that with the old strings, otherwise I’ll have to take the new ones off and on again.

A minor tweek of the truss-rod.  

With that right I can better assess by how much I need to take the bridge down by.

Actually not very much.

Before I put the new strings on a spot of Lemon Oil is always a good idea.

The action at the first fret was rather high as well.

so cut the slots down a little.

There it is, playing nicely now.
