    Is it recommended to remove tension from a string to adjust it's bridge saddle height?

    Thanks,

    Others may chime in to state the contrary, but I have never heard this to be necessary. I've never reduced the tension when adjusting my saddle height, and none of my basses have exploded yet. ;)
