Recently bought a 2016 used J45 unseen off the internet. It arrived and everything looked good, but the action was high. The guitar looked barely played and I assumed this was why. I took the guitar to my luthier for a setup and he’s done a really good job getting to action to a good place. Guitar plays lovely now. However the saddle had to come down a lot and he said he could have gotten the action a tad lower, but then there wouldn’t be enough break angle in the strings.
I’ve been playing it a bit and I’m wondering if it’s not loud enough for the type of guitar it is. I then started looking in to neck angles and neck resets etc and I’m wondering if I’ve got a duff one or if I’m just being overly paranoid.
Here are are pics of the saddle post setup. The action is now around 2-2.5mm on the low E at the 12th. What are your thoughts, should a saddle on a guitar this young be this low or is it fine?
