My girlfriend was having trouble getting the B string to ring while learning the F barre chord on her acoustic. I thought it was her technique…but then I tried her guitar, and I struggled with it too.
We had an extremely humid summer here in Nova Scotia, and as far as I can tell, the neck has twisted. The headstock is not parallel to the soundboard. It is twisted down towards the thinner strings, which has raised the action on those strings, making it harder to play barre chords.
Is this something that can be fixed?
We have access to a good luthier, but it’s a cheap guitar, so it might not be worth fixing.
