Hi, I have just bought a AS201 and love the sound, especially for the money! This is my first acoustic guitar, although I am familiar with setting up electric guitars.
I was wondering if anyone could help me sort out a few problems I have with the way the guitar is set-up. Out of interest what is the relief when the low E string is fretted at the 1st and 14th fret supposed to be? As mine appears to be quite high at 1mm, in addition to this the truss rod appears to be as tight as it can go, so I dont think I can lower this, can I?
Secondly the action of the low E at the 12 fret is 3.5/4mm and the high E 3mm, this also seems a bit high. There is no shim or anything underneath the saddle, so is my only option of lowering the action to reduce the height of the saddle or perhaps a set of lighter strings?
Thanks for your time in reading this, any help will be appreciated!
