Raising Bridge

Hey i know this has probably been asked, but I did do a search and like 22 pages came up. Anyways, i just got my guitar some new strings, Jackson Slsmg Soloist, and im trying to get the strings right with the fixed bridge. Meaning, some of the strings when u get to like 21 fret it plays same note as on some other frets cause the string touching the fret.
The bridge has two adjustments it looks like on each post at the top has a flat head type thing to turn it turns the pole, and then about the middle of the pole right under the bridge, what it sets on, is another like turn type deal. Any suggestions on which to turn or about how much, and is it going to affect the pick ups? Thanks all \m/ Josh

Re: Raising Bridge

Thanks bro. I'm going to try that. Hopefully not mess anything up haha. Is it going to effect the action of the pick ups at all. Thanks for the reply
