New member and first Breedlove!

Post by sampost51 on Wed Oct 30, 2013 7:42 am

Hi - New forum member and first Breedlove guitar! I just bought an Oregon OM/SMYe - incredible guitar! Does Breedlove have authorized repair folks, like Martin? The action is a bit too high on the upper frets. The delaer said they would gladly look at it but I want to have a back-up just in case. I'm not sure if it's the truss rod or the saddle is too high - I just play them, I never mess with them!
Thanks for an suggestions -

Welcome to TSS sampost51.  Doesn't sound like the saddle is too high but the nut.  Messin with them is half the fun.  Hopefully where you bought the guitar has a luthier on staff or one that visits.  Give em a call.  A basic setup should be part of your purchase, if not go somewhere else.  My $.02 worth.

Thanks - I did take it back to the shop,  they did an adjustment (nut and a truss rod tweak) all is good! Plays and sounds great

Man I hate it when my nuts aren't right.

Good to hear everything is tweaked out.
