    I noticed recently that when I bend the high E, the note chokes out. After inspection, its very clear that strings are not perfectly centered in the bridge saddles, the worst being on the high E. I took the strings off and removed the bridge to take a look at everything, and the saddles were...

    I've finished the intonation adjustment of my JPM100, following the instructions on Ibanez Rules. But look at the D string saddle, far back... I've never seen anything like that on any intonated guitar. I double checked, that's the correct position for all saddles. Is this a normal thing? Or...

    I am looking to buy a black saddle for an Ibanez Edge 3. I may also be interested in a whole bridge, but it would have to be cheap. The cheaper the better, but I am not willing to spend more then $20 on just the saddle. Located in Victorville, CA

    In my new UV70p i just got yesterday, the action in the 3 middle saddles goes like D less than A less than G , (with action of high E measuring 1.2mm and low B 1.5mm @24th fret) which does not make much sense. I would suppose for action to grow gradually from G->D->A. Is the above normal? Neck...

    Hey All, I ordered an economy 2 point trem from Ebay for my Strat, and the seller has not shipped it yet and I figure its a write off. So I ordered another bridge a Mighty Mite 1134B Is there any major differences between economy, Mighty Mite, and standard Fender Trem blocks? Should I expect...

    Hey all, I just received a Graphtech TUSQ saddle this week to swap out the bone one in my Martin D-28. I spent a couple of hours Saturday sanding it down to the height of my original bone saddle and sanded the side till it fit snug in the saddle cavity. Restrung the guitar and it plays...

    I've re-intonated the 540r that I got last month. It was off, most noticeably on the low e string. I've got every other string intonated just about perfectly but the low e string is still quite a ways off (almost a d# at the 12th fret). The problem is my saddle is already all the way...

    Hey guys, I recently picked up an RG927 with the EZII + ZPS. I have buzzing when I play the open high B string. This happens whether I have it clamped at the nut or with the clamps removed. It will also buzz with fretted notes but the vibration is still coming from the saddle. It's...

    I need your help brothers.. i removed the parts of my guitar's edge trem for cleaning purposes. I also removed the saddles so that it can also be clean. after cleaning the parts, i restringed and found out that my strings are now unbalanced in terms of string height. My B string is lower than...

    I've got a new (to me) RG550 that I'm almost done setting up. The only remaining issue is a slightly odd one. The G string is slightly (~0.3mm) higher than it should be. It sounds minor, but I actually do notice it. I plan to swap the G saddle with the low E saddle as a sort of compromise...

    I'm a bit confused by the holes on the Edge baseplate. There are 2 locations for the screws, you can set them flush or a row back. I've seen pictures with them all straight, and other variations. Can anyone help me understand how to locate these correctly, assume it comes under intonation...

    I've owned an Ibanez Prestige 1570 RG for close to 3 years now and haven't had any problems. Several months ago, I took it in to the local guitar shop to get an intonation adjustment and general set-up. Since then everything has seemed just fine, until about a week ago. I'm not too tech-savvy...

    i was adjusting the intonation on my RG and the saddle screw stripped, any ideas in how to get it out?? i have spare saddle screws to replace that one but i need to unscrew that on first, thanks

    Unlock nut when setting intonation? The EZ2 manual states you should unlock the nut before adjusting the saddles. There's nothing of the sort in the EZ1 manual. I assume it's to allow tuning in case of large adjustments, and the difference between the manuals for the two terms is just Ibanez's...

    Hey guys, I'm looking for shorter length saddle height screws for my RG321MHs bridge. It is the bridge previous to the Gibraltar bridge. I'm just looking to make the bridge feel smooth so when I palm mute the screws don't dig in to my palm. Do you guys know where I can find those shorter saddle...

    I am interested in knowing if a saddle for the Edge trem can replace a saddle for the Edge III trem system. What I wish to do is to mod my trem to accept the EVH drop-D add-on to allow the floating trem to quickly adjust between Std and drop-D tuning. any advise would be welcome.

    Okay, I am changing strings on an Edge Pro 7 for the first time. I had a stubborn string that wouldn't come out of the saddle. So I loosened the saddle's bolt with the allen wrench until that saddle's "gizmo" came out. So I have the black thing, the spring and the bolt all out of the trem...
