I was looking into lowering the action on my Jackson. It has a floyd rose, and one of the threads I was reading had a link for how to lower the action with most bridges. For a floyd rose, it said all you have to do is lower the bridge by tightening the screws. Fine, I can do that. What I'm wondering, is what are the possible negative outcomes of doing this? Is the worst thing that could happen fret-buzz? Could this mess with my intonation? By lowering the bridge will i have to adjust the floyd's springs?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You shouldn't have to re-adjust the springs. The intonation will be off, but intonation is never perfect. I wouldn't worry about the intonation.

You may get some fretbuzz.

Alright, thanks. Maggot, when you say nothing at all...has it at least given you lower action? haha...

I did it a few days ago. No problems whatsoever. Didn't even need to fine tune much afterwards. The only thing I was a little bit anxious about was whether it'd be fine to do it with full string tension, but I ended up being all "Fuck it, this is hardened steel- it'll hold up." And apparently it did. Now, can anybody tell me if I made a mistake?

Huh, I hadn't thought about the string tension...****. I can't imagine you did anything wrong as long as it still works.

If you're worried about string tension, just detune all the strings as much as you can with the fine tuners. That may do the trick.
