Re: Replacing Edge Zero ii with Edge Zero
to be frank, i never heard of sitar problem due to the saddle before. You could try to :
- fill sligtly the hole with strong metal epoxy glue (permatex cold weld or smth equivalent), then file it with some round file matching the original groove
- "coat" with thin paper and super glue, let the string form its own optimum groove
Replacling the saddle should be your last option, and you really need NOT replace the whole bridge, unless you have money to waste and willing to deal with routings, removing wood, and the possible chance the new bridge to have new problems, everytime i had a sitar problem with my guitars (with the nut), and i chose to replace it (nut), almost in every single case the next part had the same problem somewhere else, and I've seen it with gotoh, schaller, etc...
I'd say stick with your hardware and make it right by fixing it.
