RG920QMZ Need neck Shim?

I've been spoiled having a John Petrucci Music Man for quite a number of years now, but I needed another guitar for gigs and the Premium series caught my eye.

I'm not sure if it's the case with this specific guitar, but do Ibanez models usually need some type of neck shim to get the action low? I've got the neck pretty straight on this guitar, but when lowering the trem the bridge pickup is pretty much right on the strings at this point. Help lol ... I tried to post a pic, but I don't have enough posts here.

If you can't lower the pickup and more, just take out the screws, and shorten them (a little). I had to do that with my middle pickup because my picking hand seemed to hit it from time to time and made a nasty sound. Took out the screws, cut them down and put them back in. Now it's recessed that way I have my strats.
