Hi All,

Fitting an adjustable bridge for the first time.   This is my third build.   It's a three string and everything is in place but height adjustment is minimal as the string ball is sitting under the adjustable bit.   I guess I've strung it wrongly but there doesn't seem to be another way.   Any help / suggestions greatly appreciated.

Picture?

Thanks Brian,  this is as good as I could get.   I fed the string under the adjustment piece and as you can see this blocks the height adjustment.

Arthur, hard to tell but it looks like the bridge is setup for strings to come from underneath.

I use this type of Fender setup where the string come from the back under the mount screw for each bridge piece. You could drill holes to make it work. See pic.

Yes, run the strings through those holes in the rear of the bridge, is the easiest. The best string angle is to run them through the bottom of the bridge, from underneath like a Strat or Tele? See how they come from underneath?

Thanks guys for the help.   All fixed and working fine now.   What a great resource this is !!

Regards

Art

Success! :D
