​ FAQ 
1. Questions about Travel Bag Guitar
*Will it be out of tune when the neck is installed?
A.Tuning deviations after assembly are usually within a semitone. It's a good idea to tug on the strings to stabilize them before fine-tuning them again.

*The string height feels high when assembled. How can I lower the string height?
A.If the neck is properly fixed with a screw bolt, the string height is set to be appropriate, but if you feel that the string height is too high, please try the following two methods first. ​
1) Make sure that the screw bolt on the back of the body is tightened until there is no gap between the neck and the body. Fully tightening the screw bolts will solve most of the string height issues.
Please see this video for instructions on how to remove the neck: 


Other effective tightening methods are:
a. Hold the body between your knees, hold the neck near the head with one hand and press it against the body while turning the screw bolt to tighten easily.

b. Another method is to hold the neck near the head with one hand so that it does not slip, and place it on the floor or desk at an angle of about 45 degrees with the top of the body facing down. In that state, turn the screw bolt while holding it down.

*For the wooden travel bag guitar, you can use the dedicated shim kit (sold separately) to try a more detailed neck setting.

*When removing the neck, if the screw bolt is loosened and the black button latch is released, but the screw bolt is still caught, press the neck against the body and loosen the screw bolt by 2-3 turns. and the neck comes off.

*Does the neck detachable system affect the attack and sustain of the sound?
A.A robust detachable system and an elaborate neck pocket have almost no effect on the sound.
In terms of sustain, it actually surpasses that of a regular acoustic guitar.

*Does attaching and detaching the neck affect the string life?
A. Attaching and detaching the neck itself has almost no effect, but if you play every day and are concerned about changes in sound quality,We recommend replacing coated strings every 3 months or 300 hours of use.

* How should I store it when not playing?
A.It can be stored in a backpack or assembled, but when storing a wooden travel bag guitar assembled for a long period of time, it is recommended to keep the neck from sticking in the neck pocket due to changes in temperature and humidity. Leave the bolts on the back slightly loose.
