  1. I tried to attach some pictures of the guitar but it’s saying that the file is too big. But I did find out that these style of thumb screws are actually hollow on the bottom side so I do in fact still have some adjustment left. I was reading that some guys actually find it desirable to have one where the bridge needs to be set up closer to the body so that makes me happy. Lol
  2. No I’m not confusing the bridge with the stop bar. I can take pics when I get home in a few hours. What would be most helpful to see?
  3. Yea I did tighten the truss rod a bit. When putting a capo on the first fret and fretting the last there is a little less than a business card width of relief at the 9th/10th. I think I’m going to take it to a friend who has all the proper tools for taking actual measurements. Could a nut that is not cut deep enough causing something like this?
  4. Thx for the reply. When doing the setup I didn’t take the time to measure everything. I usually just do it by eye and feel (how it plays). Just curious if it’s fairly normal to have to run the bridge low like that
  5. Hey guys. So I picked up any first Gibson last week. Got a used 2019 LP classic for a pretty good price. I finally got around to putting fresh strings and doing a setup on it last night. I am fairly satisfied how well it is playing my only concerns is that the bridge is lowered all the way it can go on both the bass and treble side. Like I said it plays fine but I just don’t like the idea of not having and adjustment left in the action. Anyone else come across a similar situation?
