I just got a les paul, love it and everything. but the action at the higher frets (9-22) is a lot higher than i like. how do i go about lowering it?
lower the bridge?
Look at your guitar bridge, and there should be a screw type thing on the either side, and twist both. Right for lower I think.
lower the bridge and or give it a truss rod adjustment if the neck is not straight
just turn the wide knobs under your bridge to set your action. very easy on les pauls
