I can never lower the saddles with an allen wrench, even the ones that come with the guitars to change the height. So I loosen my string enough to get in there lift the saddles and turn the screw to the height I want. Then tune up and see If it's the hight desired. If thats not enough go a guitar shop and see if they can throw in a shim. Fenders tend to have natural high action.

i like strats, because individual saddle adjustments, help me to get low action.^

Is there any way to just lower the whole six strings at one time like i can wit my epi sg? this method makes only minimal difference without fret buzz
Damien Rice === Legend
#17
well no. if you raise the saddles and still get fret buzz, then, your neck might need adjusting.

depends on where the buzz is, what frets and strings.

Is there any easy way to check the right/decent height the sstrings shoul be from frets?
Damien Rice === Legend
#19
you can check the neck relief,

fret the Low E first fret, at the same time,
fret the low E last fret, where the neck and body meet.

with both places held, look at the middle frets 7-9th.

if the string lays on the fretwire there, then you dont have enough bend.
if the string is more than a credit cards thickness up from the fretwire there, then you probably have too much bend,


measuer and repost.

No theres no buzzing now because i compensated that with a higher action...But the actiion now feels quite high compared to my Epiphone SG

you can give the truss rod a counter clockwise turn 1/4" to increase relief help you clear the frets and hopefully allow you to lower the saddles a little.

dont force the turn, after you adjust make sure to leave the guitar in tune to settle for the night, and remember that 1/4" is a very small amount.

remeasure in the morning.
