The Martin SC-28e is marketed as an acoustic guitar with electric guitar like low action. When it arrived the action was 7/64 at 12th fret bass E string- very high for ANY guitar. The SC- 28e should have an action of 4-5/64. I took it to Martin’s main facility in Nazareth, PA for setup or repair. Unbelievably, they did not know how to work on it. There is a set of neck shims you must buy separately. I wanted the low action shim installed. Long story short, I came home with a guitar I wasn’t happy with because I couldn’t get the low action this guitar is marketed as being capable of without buzzing and intonation issues. Very bad experience with Martin technical support. Guitar was returned. zZounds was very helpful getting the guitar returned to them.
