Re: Action/bridge problems after changing strings on my JS
The bridge is correct in it it's horizontal position, you want the rectangle parallel to the body. The trem itself is sitting high. Make sure the knife edge is sitting in the v of the trem stud. It should be, they are built to keep it in the center.
The only way for the trem to move vertical is by turning the trem studs. If you changed the strings one by one, the studs should not have moved. To drop the action back down, take the pressure off the trem (I take the springs out by pushing the bar back and slackening the springs then lifting the trem out.) You want to avoid turning the trem studs with pressure on them as not to damage the knife edges of the trem.
