what exactly is the "action" ? haha im a noob and its like an SG copy

action is how high the strings are off the board, so you have a stop tail...?

action is the string height from the fret board.

it should be the "Gibson style hard tail", or Tuneomatic, follow those instructions.
Personally when i adjust my strings, i make them so low, that when you fret the 22 fret on the two E strings (the top string and bottom string) that string are hitting the bridge pickup, then i slowly raise my strings so that it doesnt hit the pickup anymore. This gets my strings REALLY low for faster playing, and i have no problem with dead frets or bending problems. Any questions post here, sorry if my explanation is for ****,.
