Not sure why you wouldn't do it yourself.
Because I didn't want to fuck it up. If it had been my cheap guitar I might have tried it. Do you try to fill your own cavities? Diagnose your own sickness and buy fish antibiotics like martin?
I know. I change my own strings, did so last week actually, light weight Ernie Ball and the guitar plays just fine
I change my own strings but I leave adjustment stuff to the professionals.
Just seems odd that it needed to be adjusted. None of my acoustics require it when I change strings
Have you changed from heavy to light strings? Lighter strings don't put as much tension on the neck as heavy ones so when you put the light ones on the neck reverts back to the unstringed state and requires adjustment in order to be in line with the light ones. That's what the luthier said.
if he bought his second hand the previous owner may have already made adjustments
Filling cavities equates to tightening a nut on a guitar? Smh
I do all of my own maintenance on my vehicles. Have built a couple of race cars. Have built 2 of my own homes with just me and a helper. Yeah, pretty sure I could turn a single, solitary nut on a guitar neck.
You wouldn't want to turn it the wrong way. It must be nice to have the skills of McGyver. Might seen strange that I would try to work on a $40,000 truck but I would pay somebody $10 to work on a guitar worth at most $6oo.
I've never heard of such a thing. I use .012 to .054 strings on my acoustic and I can assure you there is pressure on the neck. Now if you have a dead fret or if the bridge or the nut is too high or low that is another thing. I think you guys are head cases and making excuses as to why you can't play.
