Hi There, I have a couple of questions please if anybody could advise I'd be much obliged
ADJUSTING SADDLE HEIGHT.!
1) Re- EG 523-SC model, to lower the (split) saddle I've read that you should only remove material from the top of the saddle and not the bottom is this correct..? if so why..?
Yes and no...........The G series
Taks that I have worked on have shims under the saddle
asssembly which consists of a plastic saddle
imbedded in a metal channel with pre-amp wire connected. You should remove or add shims to lower or raise the saddle
height. If all the shims have been removed and the saddle
is still too high then material must be removed from the saddle
2) On the EF 440-SCGN model, I've read that to raise or lower the saddle you do this by using two screws (one either side of the saddle) is this correct..?
The screws on the gridge have nothing to do with the saddle
and should not be messed with unless adjusting the electronics which is disscussed in recent post by "strummer" viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5694
On the pro series
Taks (EF440 included) material must be romoved from the bottom of the saddle
to lower. To raise the saddle
, or split saddles, shims can be installed but the better course of action is to construct a new saddle
(s) of appropriate size.
Happy Holidays to you as well and good luck with your project.
