Results: Action feels slightly lower but looks the same. At 8th fret, just the white part of nail is visible when I put a finger behind a string. About 2mm This is quick test I use to check if action too high, more than twice that (4mm+) being too high.
I can't see lines and letters on action tool to measure it, but I'll try.
- looks like 5mm @ 12th fret no capo
- at 6th fret with capo on 1st and finger on 14
can't tell 1mm? 1.5mm? It is REALLY low! Less than a business card!

I wouldn't be surprised that when you have put the Nickel-Bronze strings on, and after adding the sound port, and the shims under the saddle, that you will be so excited that you will not be able to play the guitar, and to be GAS free will be an extra bonus. When you actually get around to playing it, tell us all if it was a great success.
Right I have finished my tea now, the Meat and potato pie was lovely.
Just picked up the Seagull Coastline folk guitar and was ready to change the strings, then I had a quick fingerpicking session, thought to my self these strings still sound pretty good, so checked the make of string that was on and when I fitted them. The make of string was called Legacy, they were the cheapest set of guitar strings I could find, thought I would try them to see how long they would last, and to be honest they sound just as good as guitar strings costing three times the price, but when did I fit them, fourteen weeks ago, yes but how often have i played them, the answer is on average about an hour a day, that's 14×7= 98 hours, think I'll keep them on a little longer, just to see how long they last.
