Or should I forget all this and take it to a pro? Can do, I just thought that heck, sanding a saddle wasn't that difficult. But, there is also the nut and the neck bow to set and I don't know anything about that.
I have new strings on there, if I want to sand the saddle, can I leave the strings on there?
EDIT: Hmmm, I don't know if my D28 saddle just comes right out or what. I found this post... http://theunofficialmartinguitarforum.yuku.com/topic/141871/Lowering-the-action?page=1#.US_RqFfOuSo
Is working with the nut difficult? My brother has some woodworking tools, I wonder if he has files for this? I'd have to read up on dealing with the nut.
On my 2010 D28, what are the nut and saddle made of?
Arnold on there said:
I always do it in this order:
1 set relief
2 adjust nut slots.
3 measure the action height at the 12th fret
4 adjust the saddle to accommodate action adjustment.
The reason is explained above. The nut height should be independent of the saddle height.
