I have a les paul. The intonation is good, but the bridge is lowered all the way and it still has kind of high action on the thinner strings. Help?

Is the bridge itself lowered, or is it the saddles? Cause you can lower them both.

On TOM you can't adjust the height of the individual saddles, you can only move them back and forth. You adjust the action by lowering or raising the entire bridge on either side.

It could be that your neck is warped, take it to a tech, It's easy to mess up if you don't know what your doing.

Adjust your truss rod.

Or read up about guitar repair to help identify the problem. (Recommended)
Always tin your strings.

Adjust your truss rod, its really simple. Your neck is bowing towards the strings, thats why you have so much fret buzz. Find the truss rod wrench that came with your les paul take off the truss rod cover and turn it the desired direction. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78OYJYDjlzU, just watch that. You dont need a tech and you wont mess up your neck as long as you dont over-do it.

I'm guessing your LP Copy has a bolt-on neck, correct? Chances are the neck to body angle is not optimal. With an arched top like the LP the neck must angle back away for the body in order to line up nicely with the TOM Bridge and still allow for enough adjustment. A lot of LP copies with bolt-on necks either have a bad angle or no angle at all and the neck sits high out of the pocket to leave room for the height of the bridge. Try posting a side view pic of the guiatr showing neck to bridge area.
Moving on.....

That's not too bad of a bolt on version. Perhaps a ashim under the bridge to increase the angle slightly will help!
