    To raise the strings from the neck instead of the bridge, if adjusting the trussrod to bend the neck inward doesn't do it, you will probably have to replace the nut with one cut with shallower grooves for the strings.

    You may also want to try posting this in the setup forum. You will gets lots of advice there and plenty of help stepping you through the process.

    No need to post in the Setup forum. I am moving this thread for you.
