I'm in the process of replacing the saddles on my texan with standard hardtail saddles and I've ran into two issues I don't know how to fix. I have 3 on so far. The string through holes are a bit far back so I have to push the saddle back until I get the string through the sadde...no biggie, the saddles spring back to position afterward. The problems are all three saddles are sitting slightly slanted to the bass side of the fretboard and my A string is complete buzz. I haven't fooled with saddle height yet but all of the saddles are fairly high. Is this because of the slanted saddles? Is there any way to fix this other than drilling new string holes (which might be quite hard because of the bridge screw placement). What the fuck do I do?
Edit....I just noticed the A string touches the 22nd fret when I fret any note.
I raised the saddle a bit and got rid of most of the buzz, I haven't fooled with the other saddle heights or intonation yet, I will do that tomorrow night. I did notice the high E is Really close to the edge of the fretboard now, and I don't think there is any way to fix it other than maybe a new nut, but thats not going to change the bridge saddle position. Maybe I should just buy some barrel saddles. If so, i've got a brand new chrome hardtail bridge that will be for sale.
whats a texan? So i can see what the bridge actually is.
