    I just got a BC Rich Revenge (with Warlock Headstock) SN: J10108----. No idea of build date; appears to be a storage locker find. Intonation is spot on, god sound but the string height is a bit too much; about 8/32". I like 4/32". I can set up Fenders all day; this is my first BC Rich. I unscrewed the Allen screws on each side of the string but the individual bridge does not go up nor down, no up or down movement at all. Any help on how to adjust string height at he brides is appreciated. Two images attached but poor quality.

    Hello, did you ever get an answer on this? Having the same issue with one that I am getting ready for a friend, thanks.
  3. In the picture there is a small set screw that goes into the saddle at an angle. That screw locks the saddle into the bridge. If you loosen that up the saddle should move for height and intonation.

    Thank you Sir! You are the man!! The Warlock is not mine, so you can imagine my paranoia, lol!! Thank you man!!
  5. I just remembered, some of those saddles will have a set screw in the front of the saddle piece also to lock the part that the string actually rests on from moving up and down. If the bridge pieces don't move post some pictures of what you have.

    Hello. Thanks for the additional info. I am taking it to a tech next week at GC that I have worked with before, but he told me in a conversation that he has never worked on a Warlock revenge before so I wanted to better understand what was going on, especially since I could not figure out why the saddles did not move for me.

    If I, or the tech have issues I will definitely post photos up here for you to see. Thank you so much again man, I really appreciate all the help up here :)
  7. No worries and keep us posted. It would be nice to have a "good" GC setup story. Oh, and welcome to Talkbass.

    Hello again my friend.

    Well, it turns out that you were right about the screws at the front of the saddles. I ended up loosening them and sure enough it freed up the saddles allowing me to lower the action. The ones that sit at an angle on the side of the saddles have to be the ones for sliding them back and forth I believe.

    Well, it seems there is no longer any need to take this Bass to a GC tech, I guess we will have to wait on a "good" set up story, lol!!!!

    Thank you so much my friend I truly appreciate the time and energy, and all the help today!!
