Hey guys
In shorts , my question is , how much " action " is considered " low " or " high "
i have an acoustic guitar , and the action is about 0.6 cm or 0.23 inches on the 5th fret
is it high , and how much should i lower it to make it easier for fretting and playing .

sorry for my horrible English
and thanks in advance .

Judging by the picture, mine is about that high at that point. Mine has been set up as well.

If you like it high, then play it high. My brothers acoustic has a high action and he plays extremely well. I like a low action. It's preference.

Get it set up by at a local guitar shop dude.

i don't go by numbers - i prefer my action as low as possible with no buzz. when in doubt, ask a luthier.

when in doubt, always check frank ford:
