on my dads old guitar the neck is bowed, backward. the strings are really high off the fretboard making it hard to play. i want to know if that is normarl for a ancheint well 30 or so year old guitar.
It probably needs a set up done. Not uncommon if it's not kept up with over time.
My father gave me a '63 Gibson acoustic a few years ago. I had to have the bridge fixed and a good set-up and it was back to normal...but yeah I think that happens over time especially if it isn't stored properly.
he set it back in a corner
