If you have tried to save money and bought from somewhere online and found your action is high, it’s most likely because it’s been stored in a damp draughty warehouse or cellar and especially applicable to this country, been exposed to excess humidity. This causes the body to swell up and becomes apparent by a high string height (action). You won’t get that here.
All Taylor guitars are stored in a humidity controlled environment.
They are all set up and checked over when they arrive and again before dispatch.
