I just bought a new acoustic at the weekend and it is a lovely guitar. However I can't figure out whether I am getting used to the action on it or not.
I used to play a 12 string, which was strung with only 6 strings and I find that the action on it was alot lower.
Therefore I am asking, I am just getting accustomed to my new 6 string or do you think I will need to lower the action.

uh, it depends. I played an electric for 3 years and then got an acoustic; it drove me crazy. But after a month or so I got used to the action and I could play comfortably. Oh, as long as the strings won't buzz, lower your acoustic as far as you can.

Is lowering it essential? I am just wary - can it damage the sound or anything? And when you said it drove you crazy was that after you had the action lowered (if you did have it lowered)?

you don't have to lower it, and if it you lower it too much, then it can screw up your guitar, but you can always replace the bridge. i lowered mines after 4 months since i was having toruble doing barre chords.
