Help: EBMM Axis SS Semi-Hollow Setup – Help needed!

Hi there, all you fine folks of EBMM land πŸ™‚

I’ve been messing around with my Axis SuperSport Semi-Hollow for the last couple of days trying to get the setup just right, but a could use a word of advise from the knowledgeable people of the forum.

Issue 1 – String gauge:

I wanted to put Power Slinky’s (11-48) on the guitar, but the 5th string/A-string (.38 gauge) wouldn’t fit in the slot. The nut slot is to tight to get in without the use of force.

Has anyone else experienced this, and maybe a solution? It seems overkill to have a tech file it, and i don’t think it’s something i should attempt since it’s a non-reversible mod.

Issue 2 – Pickup height:

The bridge pick-up is a bit too hot for my taste. But i found that if i raise the strings i get in the ballpark of what i wan’t, but then strings are a bit too high.

I like a rather high action, but not bottleneck playing high, just enough to get my fingers under the strings.

Has anyone got any tips? Because it seems that you’re not able to lower the PU’s.

All help would be greatly appreciated! πŸ™‚
