I have been looking for an HD28 for a while. Looking for the "right" one. Martins are pretty consistent so I have come across a few. I narrowed it down to older specs of 1 11/16" nut and 2 1/8 string spacing. The 2018 dont have this. Anyways, I found one but the action was a little high. I bought it and took it to my well respected guitar guy for a setup and look over. He took out his straight edge as he usually does first and told me the neck was off because the neck with the straight edge hit the bridge. I am sure my words arent explaining the neck angle here properly but this is a common thing so Im sure you get it. He told me that the straight edge should align with the top of the bridge. Martins shift over time. This guitar was a 2008 and rarely played. I ended up returning it and am on the search again. The action was 1/32 too high for me and he said he didnt have the room to lower the saddle much. Questions: - Is the tech accurate? He told me to take a straight edge when buying acoustics and measure the neck angle to the bridge. - Is this something to worry about? Or is it being picky? - If it is being picky, thats ok I guess. I have time to find the right one. - Is this common? I know older guitars need neck resets but it didnt cross my mind that newer ones would. PS I took my J45 and it all checked out. Happy about that.
