Hello all, I recently bought an entry level UBass (by Horse) just to see what it is like. A few days after it arrived I took all the frets off and made it fretless and replaced the strings with Kala flatwounds. That made a HUGE difference in the sound and I am very pleased with the results. However, now I need to lower the action but I can not figure out how to get the saddle out of the bridge. It seems to be locked in and I don't want to force it out as I am afraid I will mess up the under saddle pick up which is probably pretty fragile. Here is what the bridge & saddle look like: https://prnt.sc/1ucuyix (and see uploaded file) Note that the saddle is a one piece unit...all plastic. The strings pass over a sharp ridge which defines the intonation so I do not want to cut grooves in the ridge to lower the action as that would be a mistake. It seems pretty simple...indeed, most saddles I have worked with on these sorts of applications just fall out. Not this one. If I can get it out I will sand the bottom and replace it which should give me my desired height adjustment. I might also lower the nut just a bit but that end of the strings is fine for now (and the nut is not even glued in). Any ideas? Note too: The Horse and the Carmel and a few other "entry" level UBass all look to me to be made in the same factory. Their promo images and descriptions on EBay and Amazon are almost exactly the same and the prices are all within a few dollars of each other. Any ideas on how these all seem to have the same genetics? For what it's worth, the Horse unit is very well built and an excellent intro to this odd UBass world! I would recommend it to anyone teetering on the edge.
