Action and intonation

I was going to do some music tonight, but the action of a couple of my strings was too low (long-time issue) and I decided to fix it (finally!). Gah, I hate adjusting the action on a guitar with the Fender Classic three-piece bridge! Well, actually, after the second pair I pretty much hit it right -- I loosened the strings a bit, twisted the screw to pull the bridge back a suitable-seeming amount, used the teeny allen wrench on the height adjusters to bring'em up a couple of turns, and there we were, only the teensiest bit of fine tuning needed. It's the 5A and 1E strings that are the PITA with this bridge!

Ah well, at least I didn't have any plans for the evening otherwise, due to having to work late today...
