My T EN28C, made in 1991, is a wonderful guitar, but either the neck was originally set with an angle that was a bit too flat or the guitar has changed with the years like so many others. But the problem is that there is not enough space for the saddle to file down on order to achieve a nice string action. A neck reset would solve all this instantly.

The neck is straight, and the top also, shows no belly or bow at all. I already had to remove a bit of wood from the bridge to make the guitar better playable. But thus the string angle on the pickup is not good, too flat, and the strings are IMHO too close to the top which may cause scratches when being played with a pick.
But he neck appears to be mounted solid like a tank, set for centuries, and with the neck extension not only glued on the top but with an additional bar glued also under the top. It does not look like being removable without dynamite. Has anyone experiences?

The strings are too close where ? Wouldnt a simple truss rod adjustment work ? You are saying the neck is straight, the top is flat and the strings are too low ? Sounds like some humidity and a small adjustment rather than a neck reset.
