So I have this old OLD applause guitar. It belonged to my dad and its about 20+ years old. I don't want to buy a new one as I have no money right now. Anyway, I took it to a local music store and they did some adjustments for me, but the strings are still pretty hard to press on and I've been playin for long enough that they shouldn't be. I've also played other acoustics and they seemed fine. I'm grabbin some lighter strings this weekend but any other suggestions? My dad didn't wanna let me sand down the saddle just yet.
Try the lighter strings first, then if its still tough talk to your Dad.
