    A hex wrench set should be all thats needed. I dont know what (if any) is the standard size, but thats all you should need.

    Check the neck relief and be sure that you don't need a truss rod adjustment first. A lot of times, high action is due to forward bow in the neck.

    Look in the "Setup" sub-forum. This question gets asked probably 2-3 time s aweek. There's tons of resources there :)
