I took my Takamine in to Jon Mello, a luthier and friend who lives about a mile away, just to have the action lowered. I very rarely play this guitar because my other guitar is much better, but also because it's action was a bit high. Because of that I also resisted using it as a travel guitar--it was hard to play. Jon shaved the saddle and voila! It plays like a dream, just like my Spruce! took him about five minutes. Why I didn't do this years ago is...due to my slow thinking.
Now I can test the infamous 'does a guitar wake up after not being played' theory.
