Acoustic Guitar Setup: Gibson Hummingbird Custom Shop


This Beautiful brand new Gibson Hummingbird Custom Shop is in the workshop for a quick set-up.

Its new owner has only just taken delivery of it and wants to get it checked over.

It’s in fine fettle and is just given a truss-rod and action adjustment.

It’s given a clean bill of health

    I have a washburn twelvestring at first I got it with no stings on it,so I put some lightguage stings on it and once tuned up I just could not get the action low enough then I reached inside and I could fill that the x bracing had pulled off the solidtop. My hands nearly move in there, what can I do?
    Thanks, Matt B.
