My bridge is angled

    While practicing arco today and looking in a mirror, I realized that my bridge actually is angled slightly down on the E string side. I'm not sure how long it's been that way. My last string change was over a year ago, and I guess it could have been offset then, and I just didn't notice. Also I did have a RevSolo pickup installed a few months back, and they had to saw on the bridge a bit to make the pup fit, maybe they tweaked the bridge... I could have jarred it I guess but it seems like you would have to jar it pretty hard, and I don't remember that happening... Is this angle a problem or not anything to worry about? I guess I could adjust it by de-tuning my strings?
  2. It's a very easy fix. Hit it with a shoe.

    Bridges move around. Just putting on and taking off a soft case can move it. If you're the particular type, you could mark the spot where it belongs with a little pencil on the top and bridge feet.

    haha thanks. I was able to just pull on it pretty good and adjust it some.
