Can't lower action any lower?

What do I do if I can't lower the action any lower?

This is an SG copy with a glue on neck. The bridge piece won't go any lower. Is there anything I can do to make it go lower?

I agree with Rob. You can get the X3 for not much more and it has much more functionality and models.

I suggest looking at demos of the gear and deciding for yourself if you want it or not.
