Default Archtop set up specs

Hello everyone. I understand that different types and makes of guitar have their own specs that are given for optimum playing.....and that these are a guideline and that some players alter these specs to their own personal playing requirements.
What I'm asking is do archtop guitars need any particular set up requirements specific to archtops only? Like differences in neck relief or string height action.

I have my string heights set lower than the makers specs.....with no buzzing on any strings.....and I'm still getting some fretted notes not sounding when I play some chords and the strings are hard to press down. Ive even tuned down a tone to lower string tension but that seems to make things worse!

Suggestions/help will be gratefully accepted.
