So my high E string broke a week ago and I finally got strings today. When I put the high E on it was too high.

I don't have an allen key, but when I do get one I think I have to lower the action of course. How would I lower the action once I actually got the allen key.

Any posts will be appreciated, thanks guys.

Ok, where truss rod is, it says I300, it's a Stagg. The bridge is a strat type bridge, probably just a Stagg, since it doesn't have anything else there.

There are pics on my profile.Thanks for the replies.

EDIT: There isnt a Floyd Rose like some others you will see on google images.

I think with those bridges, there's 2 allen screws on each saddle that you can adjust to raise/lower the action for each string

Yeah there is, I just don't know what the 2 holes do. Like if I adjusted just one what would happen.

I don't have a small enough allen key yet.

Adjust them both equally... count the turns.

Ahh.. Ok, I haven't worked with an allen key before so I thought it turned smoothly.

They DO turn smoothly. You need to try (as best as you can) to get them even. It's not too big of a deal if you're slightly off, but it's best to be as close as possible.
