Have you changed string gauge? If you switched to a thicker set then the strings have bigger tension lifting the bridge upwards. Your bridge's plate should be parallel with the guitar body and should be at least at the same level as the body.

Or did you readjust the springs in the back of the guitar? If so, reset them to the same position.

If non of the above, you can adjust bridge hight with the 2 screws at both sides of the bridge.

Hope this helped smile.gif
