Also, the original tuners have been replaced by a nice set of Grovers. I tuned the guitar up to 440 with the strings that are currently on the guitar, and it created a situation with very tight strings and a high action. The action is OK around the first three frets but then gets. Higher as you move up the neck. I'd certainly put light gauge strings on the guitar and there's a truss rod in the neck, but I don't really know how far that will get you as far as getting great action on this old girl.
I suppose that the bridge could also be taken down, but I'd personally take the guitar to a good luthier to try everything I could to get the action nice without having to spring for a neck reset. Oh, there is no heel lift on the neck.
I measured the string height at various frets and I got 2/16th of an inch at the 3rd fret, 3/16th of an inch at the 5th fret, 4/16th of an inch at the 9th fret and 5/16th of an inch at the 12th fret. Sorry, I do not have a case, but the guitar will be mummified in bubble wrap to insure a safe trip to its new home. Please see my photos to have a look at this nice item.
