Neither to be honest.

The main reason I say it needs a fret leveling is that it plays better with high action. I tried lowering it a bit, but it doesn't play as well. It was always like this though - I look after all my guitars as well as I can...strings are changed as soon as they need to be, and I oil the fretboard every 3 or so months. So it hasn't been neglected at all.

The edges may need a bit of a filing as well, but they don't cut your hand up or anything.

It's currently setup the best I could get it, but the action isn't to my liking. Neck is straight, intonation is fine, but the action could be lower.

It's nothing serious, and plays alright at the moment, but could be better is all.

One thing I still haven't quite worked out and have been wondering about since I joined this forum...all James' guitar problems. Somehow do his guitars seem to actually get more issues than everyone elses or is he just more 'perfectionist' about them all?

This. You seem to like your guitars to be in perfect playing condition, I'm fine with them being good enough as long as I get the sound I want.

I suspect James has a similar issue to me. I spend more time worrying about the gear and how it works etc, than actually playing the damn thing.

I wouldn't go that far. I still spend a fair amount of time playing every day, and I only really mess with something when it's not actually working properly

I think problems are relative to number of guitars

Certainly more than me! I definitely need to play more. I play maybe a couple of hours a week

I'll vote for this, although I'm still quite perfectionist in trying to get it as good as possible in the given circumstances, haha!
