Guitar Action, Lifted Bridge

October 04, 2013

Lifted Bridge

The action on my guitar is still really high so I took it to Sam Ash for a technician to look at it.

The moment I took it out of the case he said the action is high because the bridge is lifted off the body.  It would cost at least 140.00 to fix it.  I paid 200.00 for the guitar and we both agreed that it was not cost effective to have my guitar repaired.

He recommended I put lighter gauge strings on my guitar and that might bring down the action a little bit but won't permanently fix the problem.  The guitar is still playable and stays in tune so I will still practice on it until I save up enough money to buy a new one.
