    I need an High E string saddle for an Ibanez LO TRS bridge. Low E string off a 6 string or Low B string from a 7 string will work as well. Thanks.

    I need a saddle for the Edge Pro on my Ibanez RG2610E in cosmo black. Any ideas on where I should look? Might anyone have one kicking about?

    While in the process of re-stringing and cleaning up an Ibby S that I'm going to list FS for a buddy, we found that we couldn't get the E or A bridge blocks to release the string. Hell, we can't even turn the screw to release the blocks. We've tried WD40 and some mild heating with a soldering...

    I was retuning my 570 because the trem was setting low. Upon doing this I also thought I'd check the intonation. So I ended up stripping the low e and now I can't move it. Obvious is that I'm going to need a new screw, but how am I going to get the old one out now?

    Mine look like they have been put through a fire. Color doesn't matter, powder cosimo or black. Need about 3-4.

    Why mess with a proven design? 1. The locking block shape is comical at best. What was the point of the shelf? Just how much money was saved over time by making the block thin at the "break angle"? The strings also don't make a 90 bend into the saddle, its is more like 45-60 degrees. This...

    First, the fun part: Because pictures are the most important part. :yesway: I'm pretty sure this is actually a cruise missile, in disguise. :lol: SO comically light, and it accelerates like the thing is rocket powered (at least, making concessions for the rider, lol). It's a 2015 Tarmac...

    Was giving my old RG a little bit of TLC, oiling the board and changing the strings... Upon changing the strings I was tightening the string clamp of my D string when I heard a little creak and the clamp loosened off... Next thing I know the saddle had come in two... :facemelt: Where...

    Most of my trem guitars are the Schaller style, so I can't set intonation with the all mighty *KEY*. This is solved by using one of the OFR style screws off one of my two guitars that have that kind...but I don't like taking them every time I need to intonate and I don't have a spare on in the...

    Got a pesky problem on my floyd where the bridge saddle keeps moving. I loosen the screw and tighten and it's good for a while but it always keeps loosening anyway. Any real fixes for this sort of problem?

    I'm setting the intonation one of of my RGs, and have run into a bit of a snag. The low E string's intonation is all out of whack. If I play harmonics, it's perfect - the open string, 5th fret harmonic and 12th fret harmonic are all spot-on. However, if I fret the 5th fret, or the 12th fret...

    Apparently one of the saddles on my 7620 is screwed, so I need a new one, with both screws and the saddle block.

    So I noticed today that the screw for the A-string/4th string on my Agile Septor 827 is missing. I emailed Kurt about a replacement but haven't got a reply yet, does anyone know if and where I can get a replacement on my own? What size, thread, etc.?

    Ok, playing with the setup of my UV last night, I was reminded that it seems the profile of the OFR is ever so slightly flatter than that of my UV's fretboard - if I set the action up based on the low and high strings, then my D string and G strings buzz. Logical solution - shim them up a bit...

    Halp! I'm setting up a tele for a coworker and I can't get one of the saddles to adjust for radius. It seems like the screws have either seized, or are completely stripped. They are strat style saddles in black chrome :facepalm: Any suggestions?

    Having some more problems with my RG6CSD, I was setting up the intonation and have tightened up the saddle screws now it's set, but every time no matter how hard I tighten them, once the string hits tension the whole block slips foward. Anyone encountered this and have any solutions?

    Just got an RG760, but the saddle on the B string is notched, such that the string buzzes at the saddle when picked. If anyone's got a single edge saddle they'd be willing to part with, I'd love to take it off your hands. Black is preferable, cosmetic condition means nothing, as long as it's in...
