is it possible to lower the action on a les paul without taking the strings off? any help would be appreciated.

if you take the strings off you won't know how low to go

see the knobs on the bridge, on the posts? Turn those to adjust the action while the strings are loosened.

loosen the strings, wind down the screws on the bridge, then tighten up the strings to see what your action is. Repeat as necessary.

on the bridge there should be two knobs that you can move either up or down can you see what i'm takling about?

edit- i meant screw holes my bad
