    Feeler gauges in my experience are not the best for measuring sting heights as the string moves.

    If it’s E boarding onto A all across the board, to me that sounds like the neck is starting to cork screw.

    As I’m learning the volume control is very sensitive on both my Bongos, I never really go past 60% 70% max. I’ve never heard of it being fully open at around 1/4 way though
