Low action and high e string

Hi,

I own a js1000 btb guitar and set the action quite low... All 5 strings are fine and doesn't choke except the high E and i am going mad with it!
I 've fallowed the rich setup but it still choking when i set the action to my taste, i start to believe that the edge saddle needs a thin shim to raise the string? Is possible?
This neck is supposed to be super fast but i am faster and play better on my 75 ibanez les paul custom copy...
Any idea?

Thx
Jp

High radiused frets like the JS need to be perfect to get really low action. It needs a level, that simple.
