: How do you lower the action on an upright?

Typically, the bridge, but you also should look at the nut slot height, which if too high can really effect playability. Finally, the fingerboard should have some relief planed into it to allow lower action without buzz.

There are adjustable bridges available if you wish the action to be variable.
