Just got done fiddling around with my guitar. Over the last couple days I've shaved off a good 2 millimeters from the bottom of the saddle bringing the string height into acceptable parameters around the middle of the neck. Playing open chords and bar chords near the nut was still very taxing however so tonight I busted the nut off of there and took a millimeter off the bottom of it. With that reinstalled it's a massive improvement in ease of play without a capo. Last change needed is a truss rod tweak that will put a bit more relief in the neck but I can't do this without a hex wrench set so I'll pick that up from the hardware seller down the street tomorrow.
