    Is it possible to use TRS steel saddles on an Original EDGE bridge? I have spare EDGE baseplate with block on order so thinking if I could re-use the saddles from a a Japanese Takeuchi TRS bridge with the EDGE. Thoughts?

    Hey, I want to replace the saddles on my Jackson, which has JT390-7 bridge (7 string version of JT390). Does someone know which Graphtech String Saver model would fit? I asked at Graphtech, and they couldn't tell me for sure. edit: I feel I should clarify that I'm interested if someone has...

    Has anyone discovered the source of zr2 trem buzz? I can't seem to determine whether or not it's the saddles, the hinges, or loose screws inside, but my guitar is brand new so I'm trying not to dissect it until I pursue warranty action. I've ruled out springs and the intonation screw. The worst...

    Hi guys! I have an Ibanez 450s from around 1990 or '91 that needs its saddles replaced big time. The finish is coming off most of them and the bottom plates are cracked or chipped away. There are grooves in some of the saddles from string wear that I'm sure are causing premature string...

    I just changed strings on my Jem 7vwh and the high E string and B string saddles are all the way forward (towards nut)and intonation is still flat. You shorten the string length to increase the intonation pitch but there's no more room to go. Anything I can do? Thanks!

    Looking down my Ibanez 7 string with a floating trem. I can see (what seems to me) a very large height difference between my low B and my low E string. The low B string sits 1mm LOWER than the E at the saddle. I understand that each saddle on a trem is a different height to match fretboard...

    Hi - Does anyone know how to identify what saddles go where on the trem on an edge 3? I made positively sure to put them back EXACTLY as they came off, yet....my high E & my D saddles look tallest . doesnt seem right. I took the saddle off to look for a number or letter & all I see on teh high...

    On Edge Zero, how important is it for the string to be held at the very center of the lock block (and saddle)? Regarding tightening, if the string holds fine after initial tuning, is it safe to assume the lock block is tight enough, or might it still decide to pop from the saddle? And by the...

    Are all the saddles on the Edge the same? or the same height?

    I never really noticed this before but I noticed that my RG350DX's higher notes (frets 15-24) sounded a little flat. I played them into a chromatic tuner and sure enough, the notes appear flat. How can this be possible? The only thing I can come up with is bad fret spacing which I hope is not...

    Hello to all. I play a RG7420 with a Lo Trs bridge. A couple of weeks ago I busted the saddle for the low E string. What size saddle does this require? I believe there are low, middle and tall saddles correct? Anyway, found a place that sells them but I don't know which one to go with. Also...

    Any users of the Graph Tech Floyd Rose replacement saddles? I know it will stop string breakage, but how does it affect the tone? Do you think it was a worthwhile upgrade? Heard it was a like it or hate it kind of product. Thanks, Dennis
