Edge zero stud odd problem

I just got a new to me RG style J custom with an edge zero and zero point system. I'm trying to set the action height and it seems like the studs don't want to go any lower. There are no set screws in the studs.. They just feel like they bottom out and the action is still pretty high. Any thoughts? I guess I'm going to remove the trem so I can take a closer look. Let me know if you guys have any ideas.

Re: Edge zero stud odd problem

Are you absolutely certain there's no set screws inside the studs?
How Low is "low"? I can bury mine so it sits almost* flush with the body (inside the cavity), With the Intonation alignment tool being basically same height as the paint. However it's an RG so perhaps there's differences I know nothing about

You could also consider changing the angle of the neck (shim the neck pocket) to help with your action, the Trem shouldn't need to be buried too far into the body that way.
