    hi i have a prs 305,
    alredy did a full set up :
    neck relief
    string height
    intonation
    the bridge is floating 2/32" parallel
    set up the trem screws with a 2,5 mm allen key

    the problem is that the action on the high e string cant go any lower,
    any idea why?

    Is it my eye, or is there something wonky with the overall arc of the strings...they do not arc to match the fretboard radius but rather seem to rise from high E to low E

    I like a low action. I find it’s not uncommon for me to lower the high E saddle to the bottom on a trem. I agree that there should be enough tolerance to allow it to fret out or at least buzz.

    there is not fret buzz, but the action on the high e string is 4/64" and i want it to go 3/64",

    so should i lower the bridge 0,5 mm?

    Make sure you detune the guitar before you start lowering.
