  2. Do your string saddles look like little barrels held up by screws (most likely 2 screws per barrel)?

    Those screws are adjustable by allen wrenches: tightening the screw should raise the saddle and loosening should lower.

    I bought this thing called a Guitool which has a whole lot of different allen wrenches on it, phillips and flat head screwdrivers, and a string cutter. It's proven to be really useful for all sorts of adjustments.
