    Well, I found some bad things about the bridge on my OLP MM3. One of the saddles is probably stripped because the height adjustment screw keeps slipping, and one of the screws totally came out of the E string saddle, so as I was practicing tonight, all I got on my E string was clank. I like some clank(a la Geddy or Steve Harris) but this clank was about as bad as Fieldy.

    Any suggestions for a replacement bridge?(doesn't have to be the same shape, I can fill holes.

    any suggestions?
     
  3. Do the adjustment screws unscrew themselves, or just slip out?

    Mine were popping out every now and then but I fixed it with a drop of superglue
