Hi guys, didnt know where to post this thread but i figured since there're gonna be adjustments on the guitar, this would be the most suitable place. Do excuse me if im wrong.

Anywhoo, i just bought this 12 string acoustic off a friend of mine. She said that its roughly about 20 years old. There was a busted nut actualy, i replaced it with a new one at similar height so its alright. Ive strung it up, but i notice that the action is WAY WAY HIGH.

I thought that since its pretty old, the neck mightve warped or so. The bridge also looks like it came off once upon a time and was glued back. All of these would affect the action, no?

adjusting your truss rod might get you a little lower action, but if it's straight as it is right now, adjusting your truss rod to get lower action means having a neck out of whack.

I think* that a repair shop could make you a saddle to change your action.
