Hi,

What's the optimum action people have managed on a Epiphone Les Paul Custom or other Epiphone Les Pauls???
Prefereably suitable for Rock music. I seem to struggle to get an action under 2.5mm without a lot of buzz, but i don't know if it's worth fiddling about with the truss rod anymore than I have.

It's all mostly about preference, much like what string gauge to use. I suggest you experiment with different actions before you change strings. Higher action is going to make it harder to bend strings.

2.5 is pretty low if you ask me
mine is 4 mm
