    I was changing the G string on my Status Energy and noticed the pole holding the saddle in place was a little loose. I tightened it but didn't notice how far back the saddle came! It's now stuck and won't budge and I don't how to move it back forward. The gold circles show where the saddle was originally placed.

    I've got some gigs coming soon and I'd like to have this sorted ASAP. Thanks.

    take the tension off the other strings and it should come loose.

    Looks like you removed the intonation screw. IIRC, a few Status bridges had locking hex set-screws located on the side(s) of the bridge block which jammed the saddles together. If that's the case, loosen up the set-screw and you should be good to go.
