Should I restore my Martin 000-18 ?
I can't decide on this at all so all input and thoughts will be appreciated. I have a mid forties 00018 that has several problems.
1. needs a refret
2. The bridge has been planed down in the past to lower the action, and the saddle slot is not deep enough to hold the saddle straight so it pulls forward its been like this for well over ten years.
3. The action is a little high but not totally out of order.
So do I just refret it and leave everything else, as with frets that actually stick up from the fingerboard it will be more playable or go the whole hog and reset the neck replace the bridge etc. I'm worried that all the work will change the sound of the guitar and I might not like it as much ?
