i read the sticky but am still wondering about something. i've got the neck almost straight and have lowered the string saddle screws as far as they will go. the heads of the screws are still a quite a few threads above touching the bridge, but they are bottomed out... soooo i'm wondering if taking a bit of material off of each string bridge screws (off the threaded end) is what is needed to lower the action any further? there is no fret buzzing anywhere but the strings are still higher than i like my setup at the 12'th fret.

You should also post this under "Ask Sheldon". That sounds like a delicate operation that could potentially ruin the saddle screws and the saddle threads when you tried to screw them back in. Why not order a shim for your SJ from Sheldon? I think he offers them. My guess is that would be his advice. Mark

+1 on the shim. Shoot me an email or give me a call and I'll set you up.
