Guild AO-3 CE

When this guitar was setup, a file was taken straight across the top of the saddle. I wouldn’t know if this was to lower the action or to “take the edge off” the top of the saddle. The problem is that there needs to be a “point” at which the string rests, NOT a “shelf” upon which the string can “buzz” against. (BTW, this is how the Coral Sitar Guitar got its sound, a flat rosewood saddle which ALLOWED the strings to buzz.)
