I'm still getting around to doing the final tweaking on my Swirl, and finally ordered a new pickguard with the wide spacing for the switch tip. That means that I have to address my pesky bridge problem.
The anchors for my trem are all the way in (the lip is flush with the body) but with the studs all the way in, I still can't get the bridge low enough to have comfortable action at the high frets.
I can just trim the studs themselves and give me the extra little bit that I need to screw them in further, but is there a better/more clever option here? I checked the studs themselves vs my other 550s (which are fine) and Penny and Greenie both have the same stud placement that I did on the Swirl - they're level with the body.
The bridge is an Edge Pro if that matters. Since I have to take it apart (sort of) to swap pickguards, I'd like to get the bridge right where I want it as well. The neck pocket already has a good sized shim in it, so I don't think adding more there will get the action where it needs to be.
Shim the neck more.
