Should the strings on my guitar be all level or should the high e be closer to the fretboard using my tune of matic bridge on my epi les paul, or does it even matter what height the bridge is?
Depends on the guitar. Depends if you like low tunings or not. There is no set to this and thats correct specs for a bridge. Every guitar is a little different. And everybody has slightly different preferences on the "best" action.
