Ok... DAMN.
I thought it would be a lot cheaper if the guitar had a bolt on neck.
Also, i don't want to sell the guitar in this state.
It's a beautiful guitar with high emotional value (:P) and it's such a shame the action is so freaking high...

Hold on there...

What guitar is it? Are you absolutely sure it needs a reset? Or is it just a set up that you need?

If all you need is a setup then that's not hard to deal with at all. If you need a reset then bolt-on necks are cheaper to replace/fix than glued on necks. They're cheaper too, although it may still be relatively expensive.

I'm sure it needs a reset, the bridge is screwed down as low as possible.
It's an 70's epiphone FT150BL, Japan made.
Don't judge it because it's an epiphone . I'm pretty much in love with it xD . Block inlays ftw.
Even though i bought it for 150 euro's, i would spend the same amount on a reset if necessary...

What about the saddle? How low's the saddle?

Well, i think saddle and bridge are the same thing :P .
here's a pic of it:

And the height of the action:

And of course of the beaty herself .


It might be possible to take more from the saddle but i think it'll ruin the guitar.
Playing near the headstock is quite easy, but when you go higher up the neck (wich i like, of course) it's real hard to play and impossible to play fast.

Btw as you can see there's an block inlay missing, but i still have it!
When i take of the strings i'm going to glue it back in.

That just sounds like a truss rod/bowing problem. Bring it in to the store and they should be able to fix it for you quite easily. Just a turn of the truss rod and it should be fixed. You might even need to raise your adjustable saddle.
