When you don’t have the experience or contrast examples, how can you tell if a new guitar needs to be adjusted? Are there some really common things to pay attention to? What are the top 3 or 4 so I can start learning?
I do know that if the notes aren’t accurate up and down the fretboard, there are intonation issues, but that’s about it. I’m pretty happy with the action. Bass strings past the cutaway can be buzzy but it’s mostly awkward hand position up there and and being too light on the fret.
I bought a Córdoba Stage specs here back in January and have been playing it out of the box (other than changing strings and oiling the fretboard). It’s my first guitar with any kind of pickup system so that’s all new to me.
I am competent at doing things on my own when I know what to do, but I don’t know what I don’t know in this area and don’t want to damage anything.
