Just a real simple solution I thought I would share. Was having a minor issue with the height adjustment screws on my 620/6 bridge. Every once in a while a screw would get a bit loose and cause some buzz (nothing that you could hear through the amp) but being more than a bit fussy about such things I figuired I would try a time proven solution that's been used forever on old style tunamatics (that have a buzzy saddle retainer wire). After adjusting and snugging up the screws, I applied a bit of clear nail polish to the screws.....worked like a charm, screws don't get loose and no buzz.

Good idea.I used to use stuff called Loctite for the same thing.

The non-permanent Locktite works too. I use the clear nail polish because I can always swipe a bottle from my wife or daughter (crime of opportunity). The nail polish also flakes right off if you need to make an adjustment.
