The allen wrench is for the truss rod. Your saddle is where the action lies. Loosen (or remove if you're replacing them) the strings, and check under the saddle for any shims. Sometimes, manufacturers know that the customer will want to adjust their own action, so they boost the height of their saddles with small shims that you can remove (or add). If not, you'll have to sand down the bottom of the saddle a bit. If you intend to go this route, proceed very slowly. Remember; you can always take off, but you can't put back on.

Sounds excellent, wonderful considering the price of €300.

QFT.

Also try to sand it straight because I've seen some dummies screw it up.

Don't ask me how, it's simple enough. Just take it slow.

Hi Ninewhilenine i agfree with one of the previous posters it is a nice looking.
Oh the truss rod bolt is in the soundhole of your guitar it was visable in your linked pic (just)


But the truss rod isnt for adjusting the action the bridge, saddle & nut are the main ways of action adjustment. depends where (on the neck) it is too high or too low.

There is not a lot to taking the saddle down a bit on the bottom with sandpaper.
& even if you stuff up a new saddle is only a couple of bucks.
