My tech tells me that my R7 had two A saddles which caused the A to buzz when the E was lowered. Gibson tells me all the saddles are the same height...is this so?
All the saddles are the same. The lands in the body of the bridge are recessed slightly more progressing out from the center each direction to account for the radius of the fretboard.Brownsound said:My tech tells me that my R7 had two A saddles which caused the A to buzz when the E was lowered.

Brownsound said:So...apparently one of my saddles lands were cut incorrectly at the factory?
FlyingNotes said:Very likely.
In order of most commonly found (by me): Nut poorly cut, bridge saddles not radiused, frets that need to be adjusted.
None of this is that much of an issue to correct, but it has to be done in the right order if one is going to wind up with the very best set up.
Bluespower said:Flying notes,
do you set up guitars for yourself or as a business? I have one that needs some attention, and I cant seem to get it to feel right .
This I seriously doubt. The lands (the slots that the saddle sits in) are not cut at all but are created as part of the mold of the bridge.Brownsound said:So...apparently one of my saddles lands were cut incorrectly at the factory?

ashbass said:You did not have "two A saddles" unless you follow the thought that you actually have six A saddles, because all of the saddles are the same until someone starts filing on them.
