Hi guys I just bought a new 2017 Gibson les paul traditional,and the guitar came setup with pretty low action with the high E string 1mm from the top of the 17 fret to the bottom of the string.Now the guitar plays beautiful,but I noticed that the bridge seemed like it was almost out of travel if it was to move further down...not that I would need it too...but I just want to make sure my $2600 guitar is not suffering from any defect.Now screwing the thumb wheel the rest of the way down till it bottomed out ...I was able to get just under 1mm fromnthe top of the fret to the bottom of the string.Is this normal? This guitar has an ABR-1 bridge with Nashville lowers as it seems...so instead of having the threaded rod going right into the body. I have a metal spacer sitting on top of the body limiting further travel.Yet I read that I should be able to make the strings hit the fret board with full downward bridge adjustment but this guitar does not.are there any les paul traditional owners out there with the same bridge setup my guitar has? And are you experiencing the same?
