    well, on my esp when i adj the saddles as far down as they will go, the strings are banging on the neck. i can't tell you if somthing is wrong or not without knowing what you expect to occur, and what exactly does occur. mine is a neck-thru and a bolt-on might be a bit different.

    i found that mine was improved a bit by working the nut slots a little deeper with a needle file.

    i also like using capital letters from time-to-time, but i'm flexible.

    Have you checked the neck relief?? It may need a truss rod adjustment.
