    Holds the bridge down and keeps the saddle from moving out. Functional design.

    so it goes through the body like a screw? sorry for the questions, but i'd rather not take it apart and find out for myself.

    My guess is that it keeps the saddles from moving side to side as mentioned earlier.

    In case you dont know, the Stringray was a Leo Fender design. He took that idea another step further when he built his G&L basses.

    These had walls on the side of the bridge, and a screw that you could tighten that would push the saddles together to keep them from rattling.

    Peace
