How do you adjust the string height on a strat style bridge? My strings are very high off the fretboard and i was wondering how to adjust them down.
Good thing cause THATS NOT HOW YOU ADJUST THE STRING HEIGHT. Not an option! if you can't get the action set via the bridge saddles, and have the relief you need, ya gota shim the neck as said above , unless its got a micro tilt adjustment. Which does the same job as shimming. What Strat is it.Yeah, I'm not messing with the truss rod... That's a last resort kinda thing.
Can you send thta to the tech that set up my Iceman one time, and even though I told him I like the action where it was he lowered it considerably.Good thing cause THATS NOT HOW YOU ADJUST THE STRING HEIGHT.
Shimming the neck is when you take the neck off, and then put it back on with thin strips of wood or other substance between the neck & the body--this can changes the angle of the neck to the body, and will also affect the height.and just a question; what is shimming a neck?
Please read through the link I posted before!and just a question; what is shimming a neck?
