String height way too high
Hey guys. I cleaned off my new (used) UV777Bk frets will steel wool, lem-oiled my fretboard, and slapped on some new strings. Now to my horror I have two new issues.
1) With a normal set of 10's the trem floats way to far forward and the claw screws are really in far already. The claw hook is less than a quarter inch from the wood. Thats pretty close, right?
2) bigger issue. The strings are up pretty high off the fretboard. At the 12th fret, the top of the bottom of the low B string is at about 3mm. Thats my measurement with a crappy paper ruler i printed out. Regardless, on my LNG, the low E is 2 mm off the fret at the 12th fret using the same ruler. So the UV is at least a mm higher and feels like even more. Hell, my Jackson's low E sits on the 1mm mark at the 24th fret! The trem "studs" are all the way down, so is this a truss rod adjustment or something worse?
Thank for the help in advance.
