I have a very old "Recording King" acoustic guitar I bought for $7 at the local Goodwill several years ago. It's a great sounding guitar but I have to use it for slide as the strings sit so high off the neck. I've come across info on the JLD Bridge system and it looks like it may be the solutuion to my problem. Does anyone have any experience with these? Any help, opinion's etc would be greatly appreciated.

Rob Distefano uses these and swears by them for guitars where the bridge is becoming "unglued". Send him an email email@example.com

The only use I find for this system is to 'prop' up a top that is caving in on inexpensive guitars. The situation which is described on the old Recording King with high action will not benefit from this system. What you need is a neck reset. The Recording King may be worth resetting, or just keep playing slide on it. 'Jacking' up the top will only make the action higher.
