Re: action help
Trying to get 1mm action on all your guitars is a somewhat futile attempt. 1mm is VERY low, and unless you have impeccable fretwork, it's going to be hard. I'd shoot for around 1.5mm at the 12th though.
When adjusting the truss, if you are looking from the headstock down to the body, turn it clockwise to tighter and counterclockwise to loosen. Turn it in very small increments.
You don't necessarily have to remove the strings, but use your tremolo and clamp it to the body to slacken them.
Also, action height go hand in hand, so when you make a truss adjustment, you're also probably going to need to adjust the bridge a little.
