    I have adjusted my bridge saddles at the correct height for me and I have noticed that the G & E string saddle have some play where they can be moved from side to side slightly. In other words, I can take my finger and push the saddle back and forth side to side, not real loose but they are moveable. Any solution to this? Thanks.
  2. This usually doesn't cause actual problems, but if it bothers you you can adjust those two saddles so they're tilted away from the central A and D saddles slightly. This will cause the strings to pull inward on them slightly, helping to stabilize them.

    I used to be botherd by this a bit ... one time I actually used a small rubber band and looped all the ends of the intonation screws under the strings and secured all the saddles firmly together ... nothing moved after that ... I have since gone to a bit of a lighter touch, and dont even think about it anymore ...
