    I have a bass that has the Hipshot A Bridge where you have the set screw that you can adjust to control the String spacing for the indvidual strings. However 2 of the screws are stripped and can;t be loosened or tightened for me to adjust the spacing. Is it possible to replace and buy the individual saddles for this bridge?

    That is a question that ought to be put in an email to hipshot's customer service email email.

    Use a small screw extractor to remove the set screws, then replace them. Saddles are fine.

    The set screw in the top of the Saddle is what is stripped. The 1 screw that allows you to adjust the string spcing of each string is stripped on the B and G string saddle.

    As mentioned above - Hipshot should be able to help you out.

    My experience with them was very positive.

    I e-mailed them and was able to get new saddles for $5 each.

    Yup - I have had a couple experiences with Hipshot's CS - all were positive... Very good products from a very good company, IMO/IME...

    Contacted them and they are sending new saddles free of charge to replace them.
