hi,

i own a fender cd110-e acoustic dreadnought guitar, and i like the tone of it, but the action is set up fairly high, while i'm used to a rather low action, so is there any way i could lower the action, i don't see how 'cause there aren't any screws or so, but i'm sure there is a way

thanks

take off the bridge and if it a single long piece you can file it down or check to see if ther are any shims of card under it

If you want to lower your action literally, you have to remove the bridge piece and file it. Be careful, though, as a slight amount too far will result in a nearly unplayable instrument. Then you'll have to replace the bridge piece.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

DING!

Thanks. I couldn't recall it for the life of me.

It was actually quite irritating.

Ive done this to mine and it worked. If you do go this route i do suggest only taking off 1/16th of an inch then trying it. repeat if necessary. itll help u get it low enough for u, but not screw u up

try to adjust truss rod a bit worked for meh



Don't, whatever you do. The truss rod is to correct a bowing neck, mess with it and you can completely fuck it up if you're not sure what you're doing.

Slight adjustments won't screw anything up, don't worry.

Sounds like you're used to electric and now have an acoustic but think the action is too high. It's not. You aren't used to it yet. Give it time. Acoustic guitars need the higher action because of the larger gauge strings on them. If you lower the action too much, you'l wind up with fret buzz and will more than likely throw off your intonation, which is a pain to get right on an acoustic.
Fender's don't make the greatest acoustics, just so you know. Many do play hard and sound pretty lousy compared to other brands. If you know what you're doing, you could sand off a little of the bottom of the bridge saddle, but take it slow and don't remove too much material.
Also, don't go about messing with the truss rod unless you know what you're doing. It's not a cure-all adjustment for acoustic guitars.
