Ok, first of all, I'm really sorry if there already was a topic of this, but I didn't find one, so I started this one.
So I have this Epiphone Les Paul Special II and I'd like to lower the string height. I tried turning the little wheel like things in the bridge.I tried to turn the "screw" (in the middle of the red circle in the pic) but I didn't get it to turn. I think it's because I didn't have the right tools. I also tried turning the "screws" under each string, but I don't think it did anything.

So could someone help me? I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you.


And here is a pic of the bridge. You can google for Les Paul Special II if you want to.
And please ask if you didn't understand something.

Yeah that's the right screw. Also the one on the other side.

All you need is a flathead screwdriver.

The screws under the strings are for moving the saddles forward or backward. You use them to adjust your intonation. The screws you circled in red are the ones that will make you bridge move up or down.

If I adjust the intonation does the guitar sound different? And why would I want to change my intonation?

If I can recall my nooby knowledge correctly, the open strum and 12th fret strum should be the same pitch.
