am i correct in assuming that you can lower the action of an acoustic by filing down the bridge and the nut? or would i also need to adjust the truss rod? or is adjusting the truss rod all i need to do? id rather not touch the truss to be honest, theyre too sensitive from what i hear. any advice on the best way to do this?

if you can break your truss rod, I would give you something. The only way youd break it is if you are like spinning it like 5 times around, just do small turns then check and repeat.

You can screw up your neck easily though.

thats what my guitar teacher says, and the one time my strats truss needed to be adjusted, i had him do it for that reason. so would filing down the bridge and the nut be the best option? i figure at the very least, it came with an extra bridge and nuts are cheap, so if i screw those up its far less maintenance and expense to rectify the issue.

The truss rod isn't as big a deal as people make it out to be. Don't be an idiot and turn it huge amounts at a time and you'll be fine.

But anyways, afaik, filing down the nut/bridge would be the answer.
