Hi, I recently bought one of these off Ebay for £50



with the intention of using it for recording and possibly doing it up a bit if it's worth it. The thing weighs an absolute ton and doesn't actually sound too bad, however the action is a bit of a problem, here are some pics:

Action at 12th fret


1st fret


Does anyone know what I need to do to lower it? The bridge is as low as it will go so I'm guessing some truss rod adjustments are needed. I'm pretty used to adjusting the truss on basses, so that's not a problem, however if anyone else has any ideas that would be great.
