I recently got a telecaster - american special. It's happened by accident. I ordered a Fender American Performer Strat, turned out the bottom E machine head was bust. I took it back to the shop, they had no more in stock and after a long chat, they recommended a Tele, after I informed them I'm primarily an acoustic guitar guy. They were right! - so much simpler. Anyway, the guitar shipped with 9's and being a long time acoustic guitarist, I just can't get along with light gauge strings, so I got some 11's. (11 - 48) I've strung it all up and everything works OK, but obviously, the action is higher on the current setup due to the string tension. Being somewhat new to the electric guitar (I've used them a fair bit, but never done a setup, apart from intonation on my old Peavey EXP), I really need advise on truss rod adjustment / bridge height adjustments. The strings on the 17th fret are currently about 2.4mm from the top of the fret to the base of the string - ideally, I'd like to get this down to at least 2mm, if not more. So, my question is this - how much truss rod relief decrease vs how much string lowering on the bridge? I've experimented with this and end up with slight fret buzz on the top E and the A at around 2.1mm. Should I even be worrying about it being 2.4mm ? Could I get away without even adjusting the truss at all - setting it back to where it was (I gave it about a 1/8th clockwise turn) - and then lowering the strings at the bridge? I can still play fine, being used to a much heavier acoustic guitar action, but it would be nice to have a slightly lower action.
