Classical/Nylon String bridges & neck angle
I'm new to playing classical and nylon stringed guitars. Although I have had access to a Takamine CD132SC for a few years on and off, but never paid too much attention to the setup.
On most steel string guitars I've enjoyed playing, a 24"straight edge laid on the middle of the fingerboard, resting on the frets will end up sliding right on top of the bridge and butt up against the saddle. The entire bottom edge of the straight edge lays flush against the frets all the way up the neck.
On some instruments the bottom edge of the straight edge might get hung up on the front edge of the bridge, but not by much.
Is the same thing true on a quality, well set up nylon string or classical guitar ?
I'm looking at a guitar right now where the bottom edge of the straight edge butts up against the bridge 1/8" down from the top of the bridge.
The saddle is only ~3mm high on the bass side and tapers down to ~1.6mm (1/16") on the treble side.
Is this guitar in need of a neck reset, or heading towards one ?
Or is this the way classical guitars are made in general ?
Action at the 12th fret is ~3mm (1/8") on the treble E and ~4mm (5/32") on the bass E.
Relief seems fine.
The bass strings sound very nice - good, clear, loud tone. The treble strings not so good.
Someone put an undersaddle pickup in this guitar, which might explain part of that problem.
Opinions and information appreciated.
