    The E-String saddle on my bass keeps unscrewing when I raise it. anyone knows how to fix that? or should I buy a new one or switch it with my other bass I dont play? :bassist:

  3. Put a drop of clear finger nail polish on the screw, it will hold it in place....not to much, you want to be able to adjust it at a later date!

    Adjust the saddle screws to where you want them, screw them out a small amount, put a drop (very small drop) of lock-tight or super glue on the threads and screw them back to the prefered postion. Perform any minor adjustments before it quickly before it cures.
