SJ 200 Truss

Actually I was going to sell my SJ because it was so hard to play. I thought it was 'pretty' and couldn't imagine why everyone in the forums loved them. Well I took it to Joe in Concord (CA) who took one look, took off my (hummingbird and flower abalone inlay) truss cover and tightened the nut. He only charged me $10, and he lowered my Hummingbird 12 a tad too. Now my SJ is my favorite! Both beautiful and functional, with it deep gutsy sound. I love it now. Has anyone else had this problem?

The first thing I do with acoustics is sight the neck. Adjusting the neck is usualling by feel and sight. I back off the truss rod(strings off).... lube the threads and then snug it up ...just to a 'straight board'. Restringing usually provides enuff tension/relief to make the neck stable and provide the right amount of relief for closer action!

If not....I make adjustment between the saddle and nut heights and more truss-rod tweaking if necessary...
