i've a got this squire strat
and the strings are literally over 1.5 centimeters
its making a big problem
who can i lower it?
or how much would it cost at a shop(estimate)?
#2
first check the bow of the neck. if your neck is perfectly straight, with a very slight concave dip. if you can't lower the bridge any further then you may want to add a shim in the neck to tilt it backwards.

no u just lower the saddles one at a time. u need a tiny allen wrench.

just screw those tighter?

those are little pegs. u raise them and the saddle lowers a little. u adjust each saddle to taste.

....doesnt matter where to body positions, left loosens it (decrease the action) and turning right will tighten it (increase the action)
