    Axis Super Sport

    I just purchased an Axis Super Sport and the action is very good at the nut
    but toward the bridge the strings are 1/4 inch above the frets - this is just too high

    the neck truss rod has just a little relief in it - and the bridge appears to be
    on the body of the guitar - I know there are individual adjust screws for each string
    but I really doubt I will be able to get the action low enough considering it is already close at the nut.

    any ideas

    hard to take a photo to show it but the measurements are one mm ish at the nut and 1/4 inch at the end near the bridge. there is just a little relief in the neck and I just bought it and wonder am I better off sending it back or trying to get it adjusted?

    It should be pretty much perfect from the factory. If it's not, the only adjustment you'd really need is relief (do a search here- lots of threads on it). I don't think you will need to touch the saddles.

    But really, if you're not comfortable doing this, or if there's something out of the ordinary, take it back to your dealer and ask for help.

    one of the reasons I wanted to purchase this guitar is because in the youtube video it is stated that the buyer does not have to be able to make these adjustments it should come in good shape and ready to play

    The tone is amazing as well as the neck and it is a limited edition

    Nice guitar, did you get it locally? Did you get it new? If so, your covered with a warranty. The dealer should be able to deal with any issues and if not then, EBMM CS should be able to help out.
