Hi everyone. I've got a MIM Jazz V Deluxe (it has active electronics) and having a slightly floppy B String has prompted me to search for something I saw a long time ago... Dunno if it was here or what it's purpose was...but some dude had a kind of steel hollow sleeve in the back of his bridge that the string would go through before actually being strung through the bridge. Once the ball end made contact with this "sleeve" it would be pulled against the bridge, thus elongating the string. I don't remember if it was a B or E string he had done this to. But wouldn't that do the opposite (give it even less tension)? Anyway, have any of you seen the same thing ? What was its purpose ??
