    I've got a bridge saddle thread on my G&L that keeps lowering itself from string vibration. I know a few guys have said they use loctite. How do you guys apply it to a thread this small? Do you take the thread almost all the way out, apply it to the thread and then adjust the saddle to the correct height? Will this be permanent? I may want to change string size and height at a later time.(I'm using 10s but I've been tuning to Drop B on this one so I may go up to 11s or higher)

    Do it exactly the way you said just make sure you use the Blue Loctite so you can still adjust the saddle, I had to do that on my old Ibanez Soundgear.
