    hi all,
    I have a Harley Benton bz5000nt and I need to adjust the intonation. However the bridge covers the screws and so far I have not been able to reach them with a screwdriver (it is too thick). Do any of you know of any methods to reach the screws and adjust the intonation? Thanks for all of the help!

    As far as I can tell from the Thoman site photos, you might need some angled (90 degree) screwdrivers.
    Hard to see if Philips or slot needed.
    Tasty lookin' bass there.

    Buy a long shaft screwdriver. A 6 inch shaft is usually long enough.

    Various long shaft screwdrivers are an absolutely necessary part of my tool collection.
