Squier CV Jaguar - Bridge very low

Post by jgpouton » Fri May 29, 2020 9:31 am

Hi,

The bridge of my CV Jaguar is nearly touching the pickguard but I'd like string action to be lower. What should I do?

Just to be sure: to lower/raise the bridge (it's a Mustang bridge) I use the small Allen key right?

Thank you!

Cheers

Yes, use the small allen key in the two small holes on each side of the bridge to raise it (or lower it).

If that doesn't do the trick you can also put a shim at the very end of your neck heel.

You need to shim the neck. Buy one of these and pop it in the neck pocket. You probably need 1 degree. This will allow you to raise the bridge but still have a low action. IMO it is an essential part of properly setting up a Fender offset.

Thanks a lot! I will buy a shim.

The small Allen key can enter the left post but not the right one where it turns without resistance...

Cheers
