Lowering the Action on Freshman Apollo 30c Guitar

by Mike Riordan

How can I lower the action on my freshman apollo 30c guitar?


Hi, Mike--

The set up of your guitar is basically the same as on any acoustic guitar. To get the right gap between the strings and the frets all the way along the guitar's neck, several fine adjustments have to be made To set up an acoustic guitar properly requires specialist tools, accurate measurements, and expert knowledge - so it needs to be done by an experienced guitar technician.

My advice would be to take the guitar to a qualified Luthier instead of trying to set it up yourself. This is not usually an expensive process and it would be better to invest a small amount of money to insure that your guitar is set up properly for sound and ease of playing.
