I've owned a Vigier Excess Original for many years and I want to get serious about setting it up properly, but I cannot seem to get the action to factory specified standards. It's supposed to be 2.0 mm at 12th fret for treble and 2.5 for bass, but I cannot get it anywhere near that. I have the bridge saddles as low as they can go and positioned properly for intonation, but the action is still at least twice as high as factory specs. What am I doing wrong? Are my bridge saddles incorrect? Is it possible to purchase replacement parts? The instrument is well out of warranty.
Thanks for the help!

It is very hard to diagnose over the forum, but I would recommend a professional luthier to inspect your Bass. If you need replacements these are available (where are you based - the distributor in your country should be able to help point you in the right direction if you need spares).
