    hello guys my name is mahesh and im new to this thing and lets get to the point
    i have a floyd rose electric guitar and i always have a feeling that the 1 string is raised or you can say that there is too much action, i showed my guitar to the guy who made it but he said that you must change all your guitar strings. but my guitar teacher is telling that there is a step to lower the strings or reduce the action so of you guys have any ideas pleeeeez give me the full procedure

    try intonation screws .. they might drop the strings 1-2 mm ...

    raise the whole unit if you are desperate .... haha

    There are only 2 screws on either side to lower the action. Turn them clockwise.

    I do suggest asking your guitar teacher to do it for you.. and watch how he does it.. Floyds are great but can be a big pain in the begning to set up.. So learn how to set it up... :)

    @jocelyn: Only a few FR licensed bridges have individual string action adjustments. That is more common on a strat style bridge. I skimmed through your document and didn't really find much on adjusting individual string action. Maybe you can point out the relevant lines? I'd like to know if it is actually possible on an FR.

    I will try and find something... I know it can be done even on the original Floyds.. though it is difficult and time consuming..
    By the way who built your guitar.. It is his responsiblity to set up your guitar. If he claims the issue wil be solved by changing strings ( which is a stupid reason to give) Give it to him to change the strings..

    This would be interesting and helpful to know. My JEM guitar gives a small buzz at 1st fret of 6th string . It has considerable low-action and i tried to adjust it and make it a bit high-action so that that buzz goes off but in vain. I heard there is always a buzzing issue with low-action guitars. How true is that?
