Thread: Mandobird bridge saddle set screws

    Default Mandobird bridge saddle set screws

    Hi all,

    Newbie to the electric side here.

    I just picked up a mandobird iv for cheap, and one thing I've noticed is the bridge saddle height adjustment hex screws stick up a bit and tend to snag/scrape the heel of my hand when strumming.

    Any tricks to minimize this other than altering attack angle/technique?

    Thanks!

    Just order some shorter screws and replace them. Easiest way to cure it and cheap too.

    Any suggestions for where to order from? I doubt my local hardware store has anything like them, and I don't know the thread count or diameter.

    Your local hardware may have them or amazon or eBay have loads for sale. Here’s a list of common sizes you can probably buy many at the hardware store. You can always take one with you to get the right size Click image for larger version.

    I hate when they stick up. You can Dremel and file them. For my 4-sting Mandobird, I bought a set of Graphtech saddles, which came with properly sized height screws. I like them very much.
    Blow on, man.
