Ibanez SR 505 with a G string that cannot go up or down at the bridge...what to do?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Da Funky Fish, Mar 29, 2013.

  1. Greetings,
    I have a 2006-ish Ibanez SR 505. I am believe the G string not being able to be adjusted at the bridge, like, where you put the allen key to raise lower it. Is this a quick fix (saddle replacement maybe?) or will I need a new bridge?

    I just want to get it fixed so I can sell/trade it up more easily.
    Any opinions appreciated....thanks!

  3. Sounds like you got some stripped saddle screws. I have had this happen before. I just replaced the saddle and the bass didn't have an issue for the next 5 years I played it. Cheap and easy fix.
