Don't know if this fits into this section but I need help sorting my action on my Alexi. For some reason whenever I tune my guitar into anything above Baritone the action is extremely high (In my opinion anyway). Got any tips on how to sort this as it's getting really hard to play past the 12 fret.

What tuning is Baritone? Baritone isn't a specific tuning you know right. As for adjusting action on a floyd rose the 2 studs either side of the bridge will adjust your action. Also are you making sure your bridge is parallel to the body every time you change the tuning? And it might be worth it to check out your neck relief.

Well ya learn a new thing every day But yeah umm if you are changing tunings much then it might be worth it to just half block the trem. You can set it up in E standard and block it so that it's now basically a dive only trem. This will mean you can go down in tunings while keeping your bridge set up constant and it saves alot of time but of course the down side is you can't pull up on the bridge.

Indeed you do. It's so much easier to play now ;D. Yeah that's a good idea but I do need to pull up.

Hey guys, i just found this thread and want to ask you something. I got a cheap guitar and wanted to lower the action a bit, but if I do lower action some fret buzz appears. So I want to ask you if you could help me out and tell what's the regular action for 0,009 strings? I know that you guys will tell me that is personal thing, but i just want to know what action usually guitarists use. Like millimeters or something..
(If it's important, I play blues and rock kinda music so i don't really need much speed)
I hope you understand my question and will help me out
P.S. Sorry if my english isn't very good..
