I'm currently waiting for my guitar to arrive and since I bought it online, they don't offer adjustments. This is where I am requesting for your help. If possible, could someone make the adjustments to the nut and saddle and we can agree on a price so that I can buy them from you. There are no luthiers over here in my country so I have to go to extreme lengths such as this. Preferably TUSQ saddle and bone nut.

Your Yamaha will most likely be set up pretty well when you get it.
You can't buy a set up over the internet the guitar needs to be in the hands
of the person doing it.

Once you get your guitar play it for a week or two then if and only if it doesn't
feel right get back to me and I'll do my best to help you do a proper set up.
It's not hard it just take patience and time.

DO NOT go on the internet and try to find out how to do a set up, there is more bad
information than good.

No need to buy a new nut and saddle the ones that come with your guitar will be fine.

Just got ahold of it. Action at the 12th fret seems to be 3mm. Is this a lil high?  Also, I noticed the onboard electronics panel isn't straight/aligned. A little crooked. Anyway to fix this? 😅

Thanks.

If that is the low E string, that sounds about right for an acoustic guitar.

Cheers,

How did you measure it. When you say "it seems to be" doesn't sound like you
measured very accurately.
Did you measure from the top of the 12 fret to the bottom of the E string?

You should also give the guitar at least a week of playing to acclimate to your
environment.

From the 12 fret to bottom of low e string. Measured using a ruler with no gap at the bottom.
