Just curious. What action setups (string heights) are you folks using on a 360-12 FG?
Versus what is the standard string height setup from the factory?

Of course the neck is to be dead flat no relief before adjusting the bridge.

My Martin D28 acoustic is setup 3/32 bass side and 2/32 treble side.

I want the best action available without buzz on my 360-12 FG.
I am using the standard 10-42 light strings that came with it.

So what are y'all setup numbers just for reference?

Thanks

Mimicking the Martin will be a good place to start. From there, tweak it to suit your tastes and the instrument.

Howdy,

I do not use a number or measurement. With the neck perfectly straight, I simply adjust the action from the bridge until I am comfortable with it.
