I did that - but some times you think you can hear a little difference :o) I've often experienced during recording sessions that what you played one day (or rather night) and found excellent is not that fantastic the next day (or rather night) ... :o) Maybe it's the same thing that influences your ears. Most guitar players also have days when they hear certain notes being out of tune...

Anyway, I lowered the pickups a tiny bit - and that seemed to help. But after all - it's probably not real at all. All strings are well "inside" the pole pieces top surface.

Btw this guitar generally sounds TERRIFIC! Reverb plusd a slight bit of flange - it's amazing!

going to order new saddles with no notches to make the operation...unfortunately the website doesn't ship to europe but I hope to find a way to get them.


A little reminder, what you will get from RIC are saddle blanks. They will be quite tall, you will have to file them to shape. And while they will have a hole for the adjustment screw, it will have no threads and will have to be tapped. Not to worry though, the alloy is easy to work with and very forgiving. Even for do it yourselfers with little experience.

Use the ones you have... it takes five minutes to flatten the tops of the existing saddles and the hole operation can be done even with the strings on (move them to a side) and this methos is almost CO2 neutral as well :o)

Folks -- did anybody bother to read that the OP was talking about his right hand?

Question: does the OP play a conventional RH 360? If so, then the focus should be on the bridge saddle spacing. Yes, if the OP wants to purchase a new bridge, or at least new saddles, they can also be recut slightly wider as well.
