Hi Zag, would you say that the action and intonation are good; that there's no unusual fret wear; and that the bridge seems secure and hasn't ever popped off and been re-glued? Thanks! -Bill

Also, could you briefly explain what the "percussive method" means, in relation to the gluing of the hairline crack on the soundboard? Thanks! -Bill

Hi Bill,

To answer our questions:
The action at the nut is low but could be even lower if you file down the saddle (see attached photo). The intonation seems okay but I only really played chords up to the 5th fret. Frets aren't unusually worn and the bridge isn't lifting and appears to have never been re-glued. The "percussive method: of gluing a hairline crack is basically applying the glue and then tapping the glue into the crack with your finger tip. Here's the video I watched for instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i4wjJv5nkw&sns=em

Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Dan (zagato)
