Re: Martin Guitars??
The last reset I had done was on a 1968 D18. It cost me 400 but that was back in 2003. As was saide earlier, truss rods are for relief adj. Martins especialy those with forward shifted bracing tend to belly up (top areea around bridge) and the end result means shaving down the saddle but after so much shaving over years the top stops bellying and then there is cause for neck reset. It is a very presice operation and if needed I would suggest a very trustworthy luthier. It is all just part of owning a great guitar and well woth the mony when done properly. Usualy a reset is needed after about ten to 15 years depending on guitar and climate. I am not a pro but I have agreat Luthier(Mark Kaiseri in Dayton Ohio) that really is great aboout sharing the secrets of his trade
