    I posted this on the Dude's forum too, but I'd like to poll the peanut gallery here too.

    Scenario: Epiphone Jack Casady semihollow with the aforementioned hardware. I've moved the saddles so far back that they are on the edge of the silk by the ball ends; thing is still sharp at the 12th fret. Any tricks for these (trussrod/nut/flip the saddles/etc.), or am I gonna have to bite the bullet and dowel/redrill it?
