Now without saying I should just buy a better guitar, I need some help on how to optimize the action of my LTD MH-53. It's not that bad of a guitar; I love the ESP neck profiles and large frets, and I'm about to switch out the pickups for some better ones. I really love the feel of this guitar and am not ready to accept defeat. Anyway, the strings are way too high off the fretboard, making playing a little less smooth. I tried putting shims under the neck joint and it has a floyd rose so I can't lower the bridge. Can anyone help me figure out how to get the strings closer? When I put shims under the neck, the string touched at the 24th fret and was way off at the 1st. It's frustrating and I don't want to give up on it because it's the only guitar I have with a floyd rose.
