First off, lower isn't always better. You can get a small amount of change by adjusting the coordanator rods,but I wouldn't go very much. Most people like the action to be between 1/8 and 3/16 at the 12 fret. the lower it gets the finer touch you have to have to avoid rattles and bussing. Claw hammer guys like it higher. You have to experament to find out what you like. Best of luck TG C

lower can be easier to play, but the lower you go, the more string buzz you get.

lower can be produced with a straighter setting on your truss rod, a lower bridge, or even neck adjustments with the coordinator rods in you pot.
