    I've noticed some buzzing with my PS Bass VI that seems to be related to the saddles being able to slide around on the bridge plate :meh: If I just press the saddles closer together, the buzzing stops for a while but with aggressive playing it comes back again.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Anyone figured out a way to stop it?

    Not pretty, but you could shim between them with a bit of paper.

    I assume the saddles are barrel style, so make sure they are the same height on both sides (sides are perpendicular to the bridge plate) to make the whole bridge mass more stable. That doesn't sound like a bad place to start. Also, you could try clamping the saddles together with a c-clamp or something similar?
