buddhuu Modifications to Your Acoustic Guitar (26) RE: Modifications to Your Acoustic Guitar 22 Apr 10

Yep, you're right. I'll go along with that.

I demoted truss adjustment because I have so rarely found it needs adjusting, and because it can be one of the more confusing things for a newbie to adjust. In the last dozen or so guitars I've seen and the last half-dozen mandolins, I've probably tweaked two rods in total - neither by more than a quarter half turn.

Maybe I should have left it off the list, or suggested leaving that aspect to someone with experience. As you'll know, a busted rod is a far bigger pain than a messed up nut or saddle.

But yeah, assuming all three need attention, you're quite right.
