The action on a guitar is the height of the strings from the fretboard. The action is changed by ajusting the saddles at the bridge.

  • Low action (Strings close to the fretboard) makes the guitar easier and faster to play but can cause buzzing.
  • High action (Strings further away from the fretboard) makes the guitar harder to play.
