    Mine is pretty low. If i had it much lower it would buzz, so it is just right. I pretty much just keep my FR the same height as the body

    As low as I can without any fret buzz is how I set up my guitars, I love it this way, the downside is I can't really play other peoples guitars since they always have higher action than me so it's a hassle.

    yea you want ot go low. The problem is when it is high, when you are playing the high frets it is hard as shit. When you press on down the next string up is wasy above so switching strings up high is hard.

    Yeah, as low as you can get without buzzing is a good idea. There are no real benifits to having it higher. Hopefully your neck is straight and it will be even over the whole neck.

    the rr3 has a tonepro birdge right? well that is easy, you need like a flat tip screwdriver, that is all. you want to lower it so there is no fret buzz and that it is an even height across the fret board.

    Actually for me I find it more difficult to adjust string action on guitars with tune o matic type bridges because the action always seems to be higher on the upper frets than the lower for some reasons, I messed around with my friends Schecter avenger and his LTD MH and both had set bridges and the action is always uneven, maybe that was just me not having enough time to mess with them but with all my guitars (floating trem equippped) I have had my action very low and extremely even with virtually no fret buzz at all, even though it takes a bit longer to calibrate action on a floating trem.

    the strings on all guitars are uneven, if it wasnt the low frets would buzz. I dont know what the fuck that kid is talking about.

    yea, thats for smaller adjustments. If it is really far off, like if you changed your string guage your gonna have to use the screws of the back of your guitar.
