    Hi!

    I don't know if it's common, but on my SUB, the saddle of the G string lowers from time to time... from how this looks, I think is one of the small screws that gets "unscrewed" or something like that...

    is there a way to fix it? i heard that you cannot get spare parts for MM that easily so I'm also considering a new, different bridge... any recommendations?

    thanks
     
  2. use a drop of super glue on the screw, that should hold it in place but not so tight it can't be adjusted if need be

    I wouldn't use super glue. Go to the hardware store and buy a product called threadlock. Should take care of the issue, and isn't going to kill your ability to adjust it.

    Maybe get a new saddle while you're at it,if you can, just to make sure you git 'er done.

    If you get Threadlock, make sure it's blue as you can still make adjustments if you need. Red or green will require heat to allow the screws to turn again.

    Blue Loktite (Threadlock?) is all you need.

    Replacing the bridge is really unnecessary and won't give you any sonic returns.

    A little dab of your wife or girlfreinds nail polish on the threads will work too.
