i have a 70's Martin D18 and over time the action has become a bit high. I live in a small town miles and miles from nowhere so bringing the guitar in for repair is a problem. someone told me that the action could be improved simply by removing the strings, pulling the white piece out of the bridge, and gently sanding the back side of it. it sounds simple enough, but i need someone who knows what they are doing to advise me of the pros and cons of doing this. i would rather suffer high action than damage this fine instrument.
