    So, I have my Jackson RRTMG. Great guitar, it plays and sounds good. However the action, even though it's where I like it, has no adjustability left. Specifically on the treble side. It's 2.0mm on the bass side from the 12th fret, 1.5 on the treble from the 12th fret. Typically where I like...

    No, I haven't bought one, but have been asked to fix one which is missing a saddle, and I can't find the replacement part for sale, so wondering about just getting a set of replacement saddles that'll work on it... This is the bridge: 2FA1C10C- Fat-10 Tremolo Set- Chrome*| Hoshino U.S.A. -...

    I'm converting a RG2228 to a swirled green and black version. I want powder coat the saddles. I've chatted to a company about getting the saddles coated but, they are concerned that after coating the parts won't be able to move. Any advice from someone mental enough to powder coat their guitar...

    Anyone used them? The idea is intriguing to me, as the body of my 7 string Gotoh/Jackson bridge is fine but the zinc saddles get chewed up. Also, anyone know of a seller that sells singles? So far I've just been able to find pre-packaged sets of six.

    I wanna have some "acoustic" tones but I really don't wanna buy an acoustic guitar. So I'll get some piezo saddles and shit for the intended guitar. I've heard you gotta have thick strings to make it sound good but the guitar feels very nice with 10-46 and I don't wanna change it to something...

    I bought a RG8 a while back with the intent of using the neck with a area51 custom body, handles and lion claws etc... So I have the body sorted. I'm going to get a custom tree of life sticker for the inlay and probably some bobbin toppers to go on my d activators set. I have seen plenty of...

    Looking for a 6 string Lo Pro Edge. Ideally looking for cosmo finish, but black is fine, too. Maybe chrome in a pinch, but no gold, as I'm not Liberace.

    And no, FU-Tone (aka Floyd Rose Upgrades) only has the ridiculously priced titanium saddles. So, where do I find the best deal on steel saddles? I have the Floyd Rose Special on several of my guitars & they have the zinc alloy saddles. These damn things are known for stripping, which I've done...

    So there's a guitar with high action. If you have already lowered the bridge as much as possible but the action is still high, you can lower the saddles, but then you get the screws sticking out which can be sharp on your hand when you're playing. Is the other alternative to shim the neck? Is...

    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...

    Found a guitar i wanted for a price i liked, so yeah. Everything worth anything must go. I've dealt with stitch and drew. Ebay is soxfan121292(29). don't mind my lazy grammar. RG7421: i got it last week, brand new, stock minus Dimarzio locking strap, which is always an improvement. Has a smudge...

    My rather inexpensive but quite fun Vintage V6 Filmore strat works really nice, except I could use a Bit more sustain on the low strings when playing close to the body. It sports a classic Wilkinson bridge with bend metal shrapnel saddles, zinc toneblock and 6-hole mount (pretty much like a...

    When I ordered my Carvin I spec'd it out with string saver saddles but sadly it arrived with just the regular chrome bridge saddles that it comes with stock. Happily Carvin were able to send me out the string saver saddles seperately so I could replace them. So here for sale is 7 chrome hardtail...

    Does any company make modern square style saddles for tele bridges that use barrel saddles? I tried doing this when I had my Agile Texan and the saddles didn't fit. I want to do this to both my G&L and my Swampcaster...I just like the feel of the big square saddles better.

    So I got a set of Graph Tech saddles for my Schaller Floyd on my Rhoads. The only problem is, I can't get the intonation right on 4 of 6 strings, because I can't get the saddles back far enough :( (For those of you who are gonna ask, the neck is just about dead flat straight with only a slight...

    So I am staring down the neck of my Schecter and it appears to be fairly straight with maybe the slightest lick of relief. For some reason, adjusting the saddles doesn't make too much of a difference. It has the tonepros tun-o-matic bridge by the way. The low E saddle is moved all the way back...
