My bridge keeps tilting and causing buzz. Is there some way to fix this?


  • Do you mean you have tried adjusting the saddle screws (As shown youtu.be/1dEZxBykRto?t=605) but they still keep tilting? – topo Reinstate Monica Aug 27 '19 at 21:34

    See those two legs that each saddle stands on? A small Allen key (1~1.5mm) will fit into the top of it. If you turn it, the saddle will move up/down. Search "strat setup" on YouTube. – Your Uncle Bob Aug 27 '19 at 21:34

    Wild guess - thread is stripped on one 'leg'. If you adjust it correctly & it drops back again, you need a new saddle. – Tetsujin Aug 28 '19 at 6:43
  • One of the three of you should make all of that an answer and add something like 'if that doesn't work, consult a luthier and have it replaced.' ;) – Tim Burnett - Bassist Oct 31 '19 at 13:13
