Alright so I just got a Stratocaster last month (absolutely love it) and I just changed strings for the first time. Before I changed it the bridge was laying pretty close, high enough for me to stretch the stings a half step up when pressing down, but now after changing them the bridge is set a lot higher. I've tried adjusting the screws already but I cant get it nearly as low as it was before. Is there something simple i've missed like how to adjust the screws properly?

You gotta adjust the springs in the back, actually.

You put on light gauge strings when it had heavys on before?

Take the plate off the back and adjust the spring tension. Keep adjusting till the bridge is flat against the body or around where you want.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?
