Widening the gap on meh Hot Shot

I gotta hot shot, and it plays swell, but the gap is a tad too small.
So Any way i can widen the gap? (besides buying the thick spacers)

THis yo has shims for all who don’t know (no ryme intended) so i can’t shim it i don’t believe)

Just lodged some shims behind the spacers. Done. Still vibes like a @#$* though
