Warwick 2 pc bridge question

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Matthew_84, Jun 1, 2012.


  1. So a couple of weeks ago I got a brand new Warwick Rockbass Streamer LX. My new strings finally arrived, so I put them on, adjusted the truss rod a couple of times and last night I finally completed setting up the bass to my specs.

    I've never seen a bridge like this though and am quite confused with what happened. I'm used to adjusting the string height, by loosening/tightening the two screws on top of the saddles, but as I did this with the Warwick, the saddles actually rocked onto an angle (and for those who don't know these bridges first hand, it's not a simple thing of the two screws being offset from each other). This lowered them to where I wanted, but it also moved the string spacing a tad. Am I doing this wrong? Is there some other way to lower the saddles? There is a set screw on one side of the saddles (on the pickup side) but I didn't bother adjusting these - I figured it was to adjust the saddle laterally, but am not sure.

    Thanks,

    Matthew

  3. Oh wow, I didn't realize it worked like that, LOL. Well I'll take another crack at it tomorrow. Thanks a lot!
     
  4. Huh. I always wondered what the use of that feature was. I guess I should set mine up the right way now and see if it plays any better.

    Yes! The 3D bridge is completely adjustable in SO many ways...really a fantastic piece of equipment that is worth learning to use. Again, hope the videos help...and let me knowif you've got any questions. Thanks!
