Guys, I'm no setup pro, but I have my "new" MIM J5 "beater" set up as best it can be and the strings are still pretty high. It's playable, so I'm not going to get anal on this, BUTT.... The G string saddle is bottomed, and I can still drive a truck under that wire. I don't want to shim/rout anything, so the question is, has anyone ever tried different "barrels" for the saddles that arent as thick? Shimming is such sorrow, yet I have a flat dense piece of lead paper I can use or some steel bedding compound I use to bed rifle barrels. But I won't. Yet, it would seem that a dense epoxy applied to the neck pocket and then sanded to fit is something that Roger Sadowsky or Nino Valenti would do. It would augment the transferrence of vibration, I should think. But saddles first. THNX!
