    Sorry if the answer is obvious here guys, but I just want to check. :bag:

    When adjusting the intonation, I assume it's necessary to loosen the saddle lock ?
     
  2. Yes. Remember to re-tighten it when you're done.

    Speaking of which, one of the biggest PITAs is getting that little plastic lock-nub back into the hole. I always have to remove the set screw completely and put the nub back in from the outside....

    Can you get replacements of that nub? I've done some dis-assembly/cleaning where the nub is just smashed. Looks like a friggin' mushroom.

    If your favorite dealer doesn't have a spare around:

    Sets of 6 and make sure you get the right english vs. metric set for your bass depending on era and line (US vs. Trib). Looks like they only have the older US version in stock right now. Although the bushing looks pretty short I think it's the same thing that the saddle-lock uses. I got replacements for an older US bass that came to me with nothing in the saddle-lock spot from a dealer and purchased some of the metric ones for a used Trib that was similarly empty.

    Well, that's cool. Thanks for this. I haven't checked the G&L parts pages in a while (last time was for -- you guessed it - a blown input jack).

    Now, let's talk about you sending that BABP Wunkay out west, hmmmm? Sell me your Wunkay!

    I just need to know where I can find another allen screw to lock the bridge. Mine vibrated out at some point. The intonation has never moved though. It has stayed solid with no problems.

    that's the pic that goes with the link above - it's a set of 6 screws and bushings that get used for something on the guitars and also do double-duty as saddle lock parts. If you've got a friendly dealer check with them, they may have some extras. If you order from G&L make sure you get the right set (they have 2 different ones although they both aren't always available in the web store).
